Transmission division growth for Conti

Continental has confirmed its position as a leading 
manufacturer of transmission control systems after the German Tier 1 announced that more than ten million units have rolled off production lines at the company's plants in Europe, Asia and North 
America in the last year.

"With this record year for production, Continental has maintained the rapid growth momentum of recent years and is 
expanding its technology leadership in the transmission controller 
market," said Rudolf Stark, head of the transmission business unit. 
Since developing its first automatic transmission control units in 1982, 
the supplier has built more than 42 million systems at its production plants around the world. Conti say that this growth trend is being driven by strong international demand for 
efficient automatic transmissions, which are experiencing double-digit growth rates. To keep up with the fast pace of the market, the company plans to open a new test and development center focusing specifically on transmission control units. The R&D base, which is located in Nuremberg, is expected to open for business later this year and will act as a source for global development for new pioneering technologies in this field. According to Stark, the new center will "raise our external profile as a development site for 
high-tech products for which there is strong global demand."
