Continental tyres at Drive Ryte in Luton

The beginnings of the tyre producer Continental go back to the year 1869 when the banker Moritz Magnus founded the company "Caouchuc and Gutta - Percha Compagnie" from the bankruptcy of a liquid rubber factory. After initial start-up difficulties, the company developed rapidly and, thanks to intensive R & D work, was able to bring innovative products such as the first airfoil with a profile onto the market. Thanks to these innovations, Continental succeeded in securing large market shares.

Nowadays, with more than 160000 employees and sales of around 31 billion Euros, Continental is one of the world's largest tyre manufacturers. Various tyre brands such as Semperit, Sava and Barum, which were acquired by Conti in 1985, belong to the Continental AG. The Group also distributes the brands Uniroyal, Sportiva and General Tyres. Apart from winter tyres, summer tyres and all-season tyres for cars, its portfolio also includes four-wheel-drive tyres and tyres for vans.

Continental tyres are very popular and not without reason - in test series, they always cut off well. The ContiWinterContact TS 800 and the ContiWinterContact TS 830 proved to be test winners everywhere, as well as for example, theContiPremiumContact 5. It reached very good ratings ??in the category "driving behaviour on dry ground" and fuel consumption.
