Continental Tire Beginning Construction of Training Center

Nearly two years after Mississippi inked the deal for Continental Tire to build a $1.45 billion tire plant west of Jackson, the German company is preparing to start construction on its Employee Training Center.

When construction is complete, which is expected in the fall, the center will be used for job interviews, employee on-boarding and training new employees. The facility will be equipped with classrooms, computer labs and hands-on technical training areas. It will include features that promote energy efficiency and sustainability, such as solar panels and advanced utility metering.

Copeland and Johns Inc. of Pearl has the contract for the development. Dean and Dean, Edmonds Engineering and Laird and Smithers Inc., all of Jackson, and Benchmark Engineering & Surveying LLC of Brandon are completing the design.

The training center will be the manufacturer’s first completed structure. Construction on the commercial vehicle tire plant is set to begin early this year with production scheduled to start by the end of 2019.
