Continental AG and Continental Tire the Americas LLC have donated $115,000 to the American Red Cross for recovery efforts following flooding events in South Carolina.

The donations – $100,000 from Continental AG and $15,000 from Continental Tire the Americas — will help residents impacted by the devastating floods. Continental has approximately 1,300 employees and three facilities in South Carolina: a tire plant in Sumter, its headquarters for Continental Tire the Americas in Fort Mill, and a fuel systems facility in Fountain Inn.

Continental employees in Fort Mill delivered bottled water to their colleagues in Sumter, S.C. immediately after the floods.

The manufacturer says the flooding caused no direct damage to any of its facilities, but many employees and their families were impacted in the Sumter area, where 20 inches of rain fell in 24 hours.
In addition to the financial donations, employees from the headquarters location for Continental Tire the Americas delivered more than 16,000 water bottles of water to their colleagues at the Sumter facility.

“It is incredibly important that we help each other during difficult circumstances,” says Jochen Etzel, CEO of Continental Tire the Americas. “The time and resources our employees have dedicated to helping one another during this time shows a great sense of pride in South Carolina and our Continental family.”

“We appreciate the generosity of businesses like Continental, whose financial support for the relief operation enables the Red Cross to help communities affected by the widespread flooding across South Carolina,” says Louise Welch Williams, regional CEO and executive director for Lowcountry South Carolina American Red Cross.
