Continental Invests in New Mixing Facility

Continental, the technology company, celebrated the inauguration of a new state-of-the-art rubber compound mixing facility at its tyre plant in Alor Setar Malaysia. Since 1979, Continental has produced passenger and light truck tyres as well as two-wheel tyres in Malaysia for the APAC market. The plant in Alor Setar currently employs more than 1000 people and would celebrate its 40th anniversary at the end of this year.

Continental invested more than RM65 million for the new mixing facility that would enhance the manufacturing process by adding state-of-the-art rubber compound mixing technology locally. Carlos Bernabe, General Manager of the tyre manufacturing plant in Alor Setar, said: “Continental’s tyres deliver safety and top performance. Quality is our top priority. Our new rubber compound mixing facility in Alor Setar would help us keep our competitive position in the global Continental manufacturing network. We deliver only the best in quality and performance tyres to our customers.” Additional benefits of the new facility include an increase in capacity and flexibility, thus strengthening tyre production and adding to the local content portfolio with ‘German Technology’ made in Alor Setar.

The newly built facility would extend production space by about 3200 square metres and its opening was officiated by Dato’ Seri Mukhriz Tun Mahathir, the Chief Minister of Kedah Darul Aman. He said: “We value the very good and trustful relationship we have built up in the past. The most recent extension is a good sign for the local community and demonstrates our region’s attractiveness to international businesses overall.”

Bernabe added: “I am very proud of my team and would like to express my sincere big thanks to our dedicated team who demonstrated the passion to win in reaching this important milestone, which was only possible through excellent effort, commitment, teamwork and collaboration with all the parties involved.
