Continental Put Álvaro García in Charge of Agricultural Segment for Continental Commercial Specialty Tyres

Álvaro García Capilla
Continental Commercial Specialty Tyres has recently announced Álvaro García Capilla as the new man in charge of its agricultural segment. The incorporation of García Capilla is in response to their need to reinforce a segment that has experienced growth following the company’s return to producing agricultural products in November 2017.

García who graduated from the Universidad Politénica de Madrid as an agricultural engineer, possesses a high amount of experience from the sector, mainly thanks to the extensive professional career path that extends to more than 11 years.

With this professional experience, Álvaro García Capilla will provide Continental with profound knowledge from the sector that has acquired throughout his career from the variety of different positions that has occupied. Continental believe that this background will help to drive the company’s agricultural activity in the Iberian Peninsula further and to position the group as one of the leading manufacturers in the segment.

For Continental, the return to manufacturing agricultural products is an crucial step in the growth of the tyre division and helps to complete the manufacturer’s range for off-road vehicle applications.
