Conti Tyre  Africa (CTSA) is celebrating a significant milestone as the company reaches its 70th anniversary this year.

Some parts of the world can get away by using these one stop bucket shops. The reason is that they are not profitable? not here in the UK ?

I must admit that i do like the style and layout. But they are more akin with the American franchise outlets. This outlet in South Africa is obviously a Continental tyre franchise. Naturally, it looks very nice and is decked out with the Continental tyres logo.

In the UK it would not be profitable to run with a single tyre brand. Because our competition is far greater, then we need to be offer a multi-brand choice. Hence, to our retail customers.

Continental Worldwide

Of course, Continental tyres are in the top three tier when it comes to making tyres. Car tyres are in my opinion the German companies forte.

The successful tyre company made their debut when Queen Victoria was on the throne here in the UK, 1871. Of course this was in the German city of Hanover. So, from that year on then the German tyre makers have strived to develop products to enable all types of vehicles have better mobility.

Naturally, as time and new technologies were invented in the Automotive section then Conti were able to produce tyre products to service their needs. Human mobility was to be paramount! Transport was the new way forward in human development and Conti did not disappoint.

Tyres up to date

Bringing time forward then Conti are on the forefront of tyre innovations. So, such new developments as “self seal tyres“, Also more recently the  “ContiSense” was developed and  is based on the development of electrically conductive rubber compounds that enable electric signals to be sent from a sensor in the tire to a receiver in the car.

Also including, “ContiAdapt” which combines micro-compressors integrated into the wheel to adjust the tyre pressure with a variable-width rim.

Continental continue with a stream of great ideas and ingenuity regarding tyre development and tyre safety.
