About Us

Continental Tyre South Africa

Continental Tyre South Africa (CTSA) shares in the rich history of the country and our employees are representative of the vibrant and colourful community in which we operate.

In 1947 General Tyre South Africa was established by the Williams Hunt Group and General Tyre USA. In 1985 Continental AG and General Tyre SA signed agreement to produce Continental branded tyres in SA and since 2013 CTSA is 100% owned by CAG. We are the only Continental Tyre Plant in Africa and based in Port Elizabeth in the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.

CTSA supplies to all car manufacturers in South Africa. Meanwhile, our distribution network in the replacement market consists of the CAG owned ContiTrade Africa entity running the BestDrive franchise and company owned stores. In South Africa over 90 BestDrive franchise fitment centres have recently converted from the loyalty programme ContiPartner in keeping with international trends, while the ContiPartner dealer network continues to operate in the Sub-Saharan region and further North.

At CTSA both our sales and marketing organisation and the manufacturing plant are found under one roof, creating a great team spirit among the employees of CTSA.
