Continental has opened new Powertrain plant in Wuhu, China, with an investment of 28 million euros. The phase I involves a total built area of more than 24,000 square meters, housing 22 production lines. More than 600 new jobs will be created at the location.
“China is the world’s largest automotive market and I am delighted to witness the opening of the new Powertrain facility in Wuhu,” said Andreas Wolf, CEO of Powertrain. “Our new plant in Wuhu is not only a reaction to the growing demand for Powertrain technologies in China, driven by local and global emission targets, but also demonstrates our strong confidence in and commitment to our local customers and business partners.”
“The extended facility will further enlarge our product portfolio in China,” commented Gregoire Cuny, Head of Powertrain China. Going forward we will further enhance our local competence in electrification and low-emission drivetrain technologies, helping to build clean mobility for local customers.”
