Continental expanding Culpepper plant

CULPEPPER, Va. — Continental intends to invest approximately $49 million to expand its manufacturing operation in Culpeper, part of the company’s Chassis and Safety Division. This planned investment is part of a three-phase project to modernize and retool the facility, resulting in increased production capacity, and the manufacturing of an innovative, new type of braking system. The project will potentially create up to 25 new jobs.

“Growing the manufacturing industry in the commonwealth is an essential element of diversifying and building the new Virginia economy,” said Gov. Terry McAuliffe. “Continental’s continued success in Culpeper is a testament to the region’s outstanding workforce, low energy costs and high quality of life. I look forward to working with Continental and other manufacturing companies from across the globe to bring jobs and economic activity to Virginia.”

Continental develops intelligent technologies for transporting people and their goods. As a reliable partner, the international automotive supplier, tire manufacturer and industrial partner provides sustainable, safe, comfortable, individual and affordable solutions. The corporation employs approximately 200,000 people in 53 countries.
