Business Field Bladders

Founded in 1871, Continental has extensive know-how in tire technology and consequently, in the manufacturing and application of bladders for tire production.  

The ContiBladders Unit has been established to focus all bladder related expertise and resources from various areas of our corporation into one organization to better serve our worldwide customers.
