Continental Automotive Systems

In August 2014, Governor Terry McAuliffe joined Continental Automotive Systems in announcing a major expansion of the company’s facility located along the Patrick Henry Corridor. The expansion project represents a total capital investment of approximately $152 million and the creation of 525 new jobs. The new investment will include the purchase of new machinery and equipment needed for additional
production lines for fuel pumps and fuel injectors, and a new production line for turbochargers, a first for Continental in the United States. Staff worked closely with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership and the Peninsula Council for Workforce Development to facilitate the company’s decision to expand in Newport News, despite fierce global competition.
