Carlos Bernabé has returned to Continental’s tyre factory in Timișoara, Romania to take on the role of plant manager. The four-decade Continental veteran officially began in this position on 1 February after managing the company’s tyre plant in Alor Setar Malaysia for three years; prior to his sojourn in Malaysia, he worked at the Timișoara plant as production manager.
Continental has inaugurated a new, state-of-the-art rubber compound mixing facility at its tyre plant in Alor Setar Malaysia. The tyre maker invested more than MYR 65 million (£10.6 million) in the 3,200 square metre facility at the Alor Setar factory, which produces two-wheeler, car and light commercial vehicle tyres for the domestic and APAC region markets. Its entry into operation is expected to lead to increased capacity and flexibility.
