Continental AG has expanded its presence in China with a new Technology Center in Jiading, which will develop electronic and hydraulic brake systems, motor management systems and electronic controls for the Chinese automotive market.

Two of Continental business unitsChassis and Safety, and Powertrainhave invested an undisclosed amount in Jiading, near Shanghai. The company plans to design anti-locking brake systems (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) systems.

When the facilities reach their final expansion stage, about 200 engineers and technicians will be working in the center, which includes design offices, test labs for brakes, undercarriage, drive systems as well as workshops.

By 2013, Continental aims to achieve 25 percent of its sales in the region. China recently surpassed the United States as the world's second largest car manufacturer after Japan which holds the pole position.
