German automotive manufacturer Continental was founded in 1871 in Hanover. Originally a general rubber manufacturer, the company started developing and producing tires in 1898, arguably one of the greatest milestones in the history of the company that contributed to its success. In 1987, Continental tire acquired American tire manufacturer General Tire.
Tire development and manufacturing is one of Continental’s five divisions and the company prides itself on German engineering and rigorous independent testing of its products to ensure the highest quality and safety.
Today, Continental is among the world’s largest tire manufacturers with a significant and growing presence in the US and almost every third car in Europe being delivered with Continental tires.
