AVIC International Holding Corporation has acquired all diesel aircraft engine and manufacturing assets of the former Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH in July 2013 and adds them as Continental Aerospace Technologies GmbH (formerly Technify Motors GmbH) to the Continental Motors Group. The Continental Motors Group is now the world’s leading manufacturer of innovative kerosene piston aircraft engines and a production supplier for well-known aircraft manufacturers in general aviation. As a developer and supplier of hi-tech and engine components, the company also sets new standards in automobile racing and prototype manufacturing.

The diesel piston aircraft engines developed by under the Continental Diesel brand use state-of-the-art technology and, after decades of technological stagnation in the small aircraft market, have introduced a standard previously used only in jet engines. Continental Diesel engines use about 40 percent less fuel than conventional engines and are able to extend the range of aircraft by up to 30 percent.

The company has two production facilities in St. Egidien (Saxony) and Altenburg (Thuringia) and development facilities in Hamburg. The team consists of around 200 highly-qualified and motivated experts in aviation manufacturing.
