150th Anniversary of Continental AG (October 8th, 1871)

The legendary tire manufacturer Continental celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. Founded on October 8, 1871 in Hannover as the "Continental-Caoutchouc- und Gutta-Percha Compagnie," the main plant on Vahrenwalder Strasse initially produced a wide range of soft rubber goods - such as rubber balls, hoses and seals - rubberized fabrics and solid tires for carriages and bicycles. More than two decades later the company also launched the first pneumatic tires for bicycles on the German market. With the advent of motor transport at the turn of the century, "Conti" shifts to the production of automobile tires. Initially the tires had no tread, but then Continental becomes the first company in the world to produce tires with tread.

Partly due to a lack of raw materials, the company switches its production to war-related goods during World War I. After the end of the war the 1920s automotive boom led to the company’s quick recovery. During National Socialism, Continental advanced to become an important supplier to the war and armaments industries. This involved the use of forced labourers and concentration camp prisoners in its plants.

After the end of the Second World War, the main plant, which was almost destroyed in a bombing raid, was immediately rebuilt once the British military government gave permission for production to resume. The company’s top priority became car tires once again. These were continuously developed further. In the 1970s, the company fell into crisis, but after a comprehensive restructuring it was able to hold its own in the market and subsequently developed into a broad-based international corporation and one of the world's largest automotive suppliers through acquisitions, shareholdings and start-ups. Tires have long since ceased to be the company's core business; today, Continental is increasingly focusing on the areas of autonomous driving and future-oriented networking, safety and drive technologies.
