Continental Will Add to Americas HQ in South Carolina
Continental Tire the Americas LLC will add a new, 88,000-square-foot building to its headquarters campus in Lancaster County, S.C. Construction will begin in 2021.
The new space will seat up to 400 of the company’s current employees based in the area “and will include ample meeting and collaboration space for campus employees,” say Continental officials.
“Lancaster County has been home to our tire operations for the Americas Region since 2009,” says Dr. Jochen Etzel, chief executive officer of Continental Tire the Americas.
“We are excited to invest in our campus and bring our team together in a new, fresh space that includes modern features and design to support the future work environment,”
Continental’s existing headquarters is approximately 91,000 square feet, which includes a 16,000-square-foot addition that was built in 2012 to support its growing workforce.
“Since the addition, Continental has continued to expand its workforce, which has been dispersed across multiple facilities in the area. This newest addition, a more than $20 million investment, is expected to be completed mid-2022, and will enable Continental to consolidate its footprint, while at the same time provide the space needed to support the continuous growth of its operations.”
Continental officials add that the new space “will also provide an attractive work environment focused on openness and networking, agility and flexibility, and the ability to leverage technology to enable remote collaboration for dispersed teams.”
