Continental Celebrates First Anniversary of Texas Mfg. Plant

The plant produces products for ADAS, which serve as the foundation for assisted and automated driving.

Continental celebrated the first anniversary of its Autonomous Mobility manufacturing plant in New Braunfels, Texas. The 215,000-square-foot facility has 17 production lines running and has created more than 400 jobs since it opened.

The manufacturing plant produces products for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which serve as the foundation for assisted and automated driving. ADAS technology, such as emergency brake assist, lane-keep assist and blind-spot detection, are instrumental in vehicle safety.

To mark the occasion, employees and their families joined together for a milestone ceremony. The celebration included plant tours, fun family activities and a celebratory dinner.

“We are proud to celebrate our first year here in New Braunfels,” said Juergen Martin, New Braunfels plant manager, Continental North America. “This plant is a testament to our commitment to innovation and our dedication to improving mobility for all.”

“We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of our employees. The technologies we produce are lifesaving,” added Martin. “We had a great first year and are excited to see what innovations are on the horizon.”

In addition to ADAS technology production, the plant quickly became part of the New Braunfels community, Continental said. The team has hosted numerous student groups for tours and “Ask the Expert” sessions to pique the curiosity of the next generation of STEM innovators. Continental is also actively involved in neighboring school districts to support manufacturing and technical education programs. Additionally, employees regularly volunteer at a local food bank and philanthropic organizations.
