High Performance Technology Centre in Korbach
Korbach is one of the most important locations for Continental in Germany, and traditionally one of the company’s world-leading centres for technology.
The High-Performance Technology Centre (HPTC) has been in operation here since June 2016, and currently produces extremely sophisticated high-speed tyres for performance sports cars and SUVs. Some 350,000 tyres roll off the production line every year.
And it’s a fitting location, too. It’s in Korbach where BlackChili technology has its origins, formerly a product of the bicycle tyre development division. Twelve thousand meters of space is now given over to machines designed for high-end production, to manufacture test tyres and prototypes, and to trial innovative new production methods.
