Continental AG

German auto parts supplier Continental AG has resumed tire production for passenger cars at its plant located in Kaluga, Russia according to the company.

The company said they resumed production to protect local employees who could otherwise face criminal charges and the move was aimed at meeting local demand.

“Our workers in Russia face severe criminal consequences should we refrain from serving local demand,” said Continental, adding that its products are made for civilian use as a matter of principle.

Continental had suspended the work at the plant on March 8.

The company added that resumption in production was not a profit-driven decision.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in March that the country can seize assets of companies that have abandoned their operations.
