Continental further strengthened industrial business with acquisition of the Vulk & Montage Group in Sweden

Continental has acquired the conveyor and maintenance company Vulk & Montage, based in Karlstad/Sweden. This acquisition complements the portfolio of Continental and establishes the technology company in the heart of Sweden’s industrial area. “With the Vulk & Montage Group, we are able to offer an entire service & solution package in addition to the current Continental product portfolio to our industrial customers in Central Sweden. The acquisition underscores again our goal of further expanding our service business directly with our customers and aligning our focus accordingly,” explained Song Qi, who is responsible for the global business with conveyor belt system solutions at Continental. Completion of the acquisition is subject to approval by the competent antitrust authorities. The two parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
