Dr. Ralf Cramer, Continental AG, at the 2011 NAIAS on Driving the Nation

Dr. Ralf Cramer, Continental AG, is a Member of the Executive Board for Chassis & Safety division. I met up with Dr. Cramer at the 2011 North American International Auto show (NAIAS) in Detroit, MI.

Many people think the car companies build their cars, but they have help from companies such as Continental AG, Denso and Bosch. Why do the car companies pick Continental over the others?

Is Continental getting asked to supply more safety in cars?
