Fiscally Responsible

For Continued Growth.

With nearly 40 years of business experience, Contine has the financial stability to stock product and provide total value for our customers from procurement through shipping.


  • 1981 - Contine Corporation began as a joint venture between Constance Ellrich and her sister, Christine. The company originated in Cleveland, Ohio. 
  • 1983 - The business was moved to a small rented warehouse in Erie, Pennsylvania in an effort to better service our customers.
  • 1985 - The business quickly outgrew the small warehouse prompting the purchase of a larger facility on Erie's east side.
  • 1990 - Contine acquired a plastic injection molding company.  This acquisition necessitated an addition, more than doubling our plant size.  
  • 2002 - Continued growth required the construction of new loading docks, additional parking and another building expansion.
  • 2010 - Constance Ellrich became the sole owner of the company, buying out her sister’s interest in the firm.
  • 2012 - Contine completed an extensive construction project, expanding the building to 30,000 square feet. This addition included new offices, an employee break area, major system upgrades and an addition of a large assembly manufacturing bay which houses a 5-ton crane.       
  • 2018 - Jayne Costello purchased majority interest in Contine and now serves as president.
