EPB to drive Continental’s HBS growth in China as MGU plant opens in Changshu

CHANGSHU, Jiangsu – Now that Continental has celebrated the 10th anniversary of its production facility here and the opening of Phase III expansion, the focus has turned to development and production of electric parking bakes (EPB) and related components for the country’s bourgeoning electric vehicle market.


“For the next years, the main growth driver will be EPB,” said Matthias Matic, executive vice president of Hydraulic Brake Systems (HBS) and member of the management board at Continental AG. “The MGU (motor gear unit) is an essential part of EPB for smaller cars connected with the drum brake. We have the state of art products and production with the Phase III in Changshu, covering the volumes we need for MGUs for EPB products in China.”
