Continental Is 'Gradually Adapting' at Plants During COVID-19 Pandemic

Posted on March 24, 2020

Continental AG and Continental Tire the Americas LLC are “closely monitoring the potential impact of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) as it continues to spread.”

In a statement provide to MTD by a Continental spokeperson, the company said that “as the health of our employees, suppliers and customers is of the highest importance to us, we have been implementing our own health and safety measures in all countries affected.

“As a result, we are gradually adapting production in our tire plants around the world, including in North America, in coordination with our customers and suppliers.

“We are making every effort to keep the impact of any temporary production modification as minimal as possible. We have deliberately strengthened our inventory over the last few days and our warehouses are well-equipped.

“Therefore, currently we do not expect supply shortages of locally produced or imported tires. However, we would like to emphasize that the situation remains highly dynamic.”

The company could not provide an individual overview of “plant shutdowns, as the situation remains highly dynamic and local regulations vary from plant to plant.”
