Continental completes Omitec Group takeover 12 July 2012

Continental's aftermarket business is taking over Devizes-based diagnostics specialist Omitec Group.

It is not the first time that Continental and Omitec have worked together. Since 2008 Continental ContiSys has been offering multi-brand diagnostic equipment from Omitec under the VDO brand.

Also, the sales rights for the Autodiagnos brand in Germany, Austria and Switzerland were acquired from Omitec in mid-2010.

With the takeover now completed, Continental has expanded its portfolio and now also offers professional workshops a wider range of systems to support the servicing and repair of light commercial vehicles.

Omitec products include EOBD service tools, computer-assisted diagnostic solutions with links to catalogues and technical data (such as the OmiScan, pictured), and items for exhaust analysis.

"We are convinced that by taking this step we are even better prepared to handle the challenges of the future and satisfy the needs of the market," states Helmut Ernst, vice president independent aftermarket at Continental.
