Continental merges special-purpose tire segment into new business unit
Technology company Continental is combining its global activities in the special-purpose tire segment. The business areas of commercial specialty tires, two wheel tires and Hoosier racing tire are combined in a new "specialty tires" business unit.
As a result, from now on the entire Continental specialty tire business will be developed, manufactured and distributed worldwide under the umbrella of the new unit: From tires for material handling, the agricultural, port, and construction sectors, to bicycle and motorcycle tires and tires for racing.
Wolfgang Thomale, who has also been heading commercial specialty tires, is responsible for the new business unit. The new unit also includes the two-wheel tires area under the leadership of Thomas Falke, and racing under the responsibility of Joerg Burfien.
