Continental Tire is expanding in Mt. Vernon.

The company is investing $129 million to improve a warehouse, upgrade its technology, and get new equipment for its commercial vehicle tire production area.  Workers at the plant will put out more than 3,000,000 tires a year after the expansion is complete, sometime around 2015.

The upgrade is expected to put another 100 people to work.
