Continental Tire the Americas' newest distribution center, in Redlands, is operating at full capacity.
The Fort Mill, S.C.-based tire maker held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house April 15 for local media and business community members. The 500,000-sq.-ft. Redlands warehouse, which Conti took occupancy of earlier in the year, sits on a 27.5-acre plot of land and features a state-of-the-art operating system.
Conti said the facility provides it with enough space to store and distribute more than 450,000 passenger, light truck and commercial tires. The company estimates it will move approximately 2 million units through the facility annually.
