SUMTER, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley attended a ceremony to officially open Continental Tire's new plant in Sumter.

Haley and company executives made remarks at an event Tuesday morning.

Ground was broken in March 2012 at the new $500 million facility for Continental Tire, the North America arm of German-based Continental AG.

Continental rolled out its first test tires last year. The plant is expected to be completely built and fully operational in 2021.
