$110 Million Self-Driving Systems Plant Opens in New Braunfels

Continental, which manufactures parts for autonomous driving systems, has completed a $110 million, 215,000-square-foot facility in New Braunfels. The new plant is located about 15 miles from another Continental facility in Seguin, Texas.

The Germany-based company marked the end of the construction process that began in 2020, but was delayed by the pandemic.The company expects to ramp up production, add more workers in 2023 and reach about 580 employees over four years.

Located on 48 acres off Interstate 35, the plant is part of Continental’s Autonomous Mobility business area and will manufacture radars, sensors and other products for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) that are the foundation of assisted and automated driving.

Continental received about $5.5 million in incentives from the town, as well as a property tax break from the local school district and well as grants for work on infrastructure, land acquisition and sewer improvements.
