Check out what is driving Continental’s success in Kaunas

Founded in 1871, German automotive manufacturer Continental offers safe, efficient, intelligent, and affordable solutions for vehicles, machines, traffic and transportation. The technology company, headquartered in Hanover (Germany), develops pioneering technologies and services for the sustainable and connected mobility of people and their goods. Currently, it employs more than 240,000 people in more than 60 countries and markets.

In October 2019, after a construction period lasting little more than a year (15 months), the manufacturing plant started its operation in Kaunas Free Economic Zone. It will be manufacturing complex and high value-added products such as intelligent glass control, short and long-range radar sensors and a multipurpose processing platform ideally suited for applications in the field of Highly Automated Driving.

The Kaunas plant was designed and built to be a future smart factory that is both fully compatible with Industry 4.0 requirements, and focused on employee comfort. This is the first Continental Automotive plant project to receive the internationally acknowledged award for sustainability – LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification in the Gold category.

Continental made the biggest greenfield investment in the history of Lithuania (95 mln EUR). By 2023, Continental expects to employ more than 1,000 people at the plant – driving the success of Lithuania’s thriving automotive cluster.
