"We are continuing to invest in India to support its growing market. With the increase in safety awareness and legislative norms in India, demand for safety technologies is at an all-time high," Continental Automotive India Managing Director Prashanth Doreswamy said in a statement.
Continental is prepared to address this need, he added.
"We are fully committed to making mobility safer in India, and to supporting OEMs in adopting technologies efficiently," Doreswamy added.
"Adding the second production line will enhance our capacity significantly, which will help us meet the increasing requirements of more OEMs in India," the company's head of passive safety and sensorics business Sukhdeep Sandhu said.
Continental employs over 8,000 people across 15 locations in India. It has eight plants that cater to the market, and a technical centre that supports its global research and development (R&D) activities.
