Vision Statement

  • Our Vision

    Continental Motors® will be an outstanding, customer focused enterprise that is loved by employees, praised by customers, and respected by society. 

    Our Core Values

    Our core values are not ideals we work towards. We live them. We breathe them. These values are the true essence of how we work and are in every product, service and opportunity we offer you.

    Commitment to the strength, safety and happiness of our employees

    Our investment in people is what truly sets us apart from our competition. A CMI employee’s average tenure is more than 13 years. Our manufacturing team is highly skilled in areas such as machining, assembling, testing, heat treat and plating. Here is what one customer had to say:

    "... Now that I have toured your factory and met your workforce, the wisdom of my choice has been confirmed. My engine order is now doubly rewarding – because it allows me to support your company and your employees. While walking the factory floor, I was impressed by their dedication, energy and friendliness. They are proud of their work and eager to share their knowledge. The longevity of your employees and their evident enthusiasm is a testament to your corporate heritage and culture." Daniel Herr

    Give Value to Our Customers

    Our goal is to provide a positive and satisfying experience for our customers. Beginning with the decision making process, through the purchase and then continues with after sales service. We are committed to meeting and knowing our customers and offering direct communication to the factory. We provide assurance of the latest technical data and services including after sales support at our full service Factory Service Center located in Fairhope, Alabama.

    Build quality into our products

    Continental Motors® recognizes that building quality products begins with its people, their ideas, experiences and values. They love what they do and it shows. Accountability and attention to detail are built into all of our manufacturing processes. We are constantly improving manufacturing processes and service capabilities and investing in state of the art equipment.

    Lead in technical innovation

    We’ve always been the leader in technical innovation for piston aircraft engines as shown by our accomplishments. Continental Motors® is ready for the future NOW with technical innovations in Diesel Aircraft Engines, Alternative Fuels and Digital Engine Controls.

    Deliver for our shareholders

    Continental Motors® Shareholders believe in, not only thinking globally, but operating globally as well.
