Diesel demand prompts Continental to expand Czech plant

Continuing demand for diesel engines has prompted Continental's Powertrain division to invest in the expansion of a Czech factory that produces diesel components. The plant in Trutnov, Czech Republic will add production of 900,000 pump cylinders and 2 million high pressure diesel injection pumps annually starting this summer. An investment of €18 million will also expand other parts of the facility between now and 2010.
