Construction Milestone Celebrated At Continental Tire Plant In Sumter, South Carolina

In addition to construction milestones, the CTA Sumter team continues to work toward meeting recruitment goals as nearly 300 positions are expected to be filled this year. The first employee, a civil engineer, was hired in April 2012 and to date, the team has recruited people to fill more than 50 positions.

"As construction continues, we will focus on recruiting, training and developing our team to have a workforce ready to build a quality product once the plant opens and production begins," said Baartman. "Some of the key positions we will recruit for this year include department managers and supervisors, functional support such as finance and IT, and production and technician positions." 

CTA will continue its partnership with readySC and Central Carolina Technical College to assist with staffing and training interested candidates.  Current job postings can be viewed at www.readySC.org/Conti

Altogether, CTA will invest more than $500 million into the Sumter plant and create about 1,600 new jobs.
