Only the best is good enough for our customers! The principle that company founders Laurin and Klement followed, remains in effect at ŠKODA even to this day.
This is why we pay maximum attention to all process at our company. From car development to manufacturing, sales and after-sales customer service. The reason is simple: Your satisfaction is our number one priority.
To produce our various car models, we have built new manufacturing facilities and equipped them with the most advanced technology available to automobile manufacturers worldwide. Our employees are also leading specialists in their fields. As a result, the ŠKODA cars rolling off the production lines at our factories in the Czech Republic and abroad are of top quality and have excellent technical specifications.
We produce ŠKODA body parts (cast parts) at three stamping factories that house 14 stamping lines as well as other production lines. Using the most advanced equipment, we can produce cast parts of the highest quality for over 1,300 Fabia bodies or 860 second-generation Octavia/Laura bodies each and every day. In order to produce high-quality cast parts, we can create even the most intricate casting tools. The tool production facility is equipped with machining centres that can fulfil complex orders without blinking an eye – such as producing stamping dyes for car side plates. This machined part could be as large as 4500 x 2500 mm weigh nearly 20 tonnes!
Top quality and matching up all parts of the car’s body perfectly during modeling – this is the principal condition for attaining a flawless final product and guaranteeing that the car’s final appearance will be impeccable. At the modern facilities in Mladá Boleslav and in Kvasiny in northern Bohemia, qualified personnel work side-by-side with hundreds of robots to weld subassemblies as well as entire car bodies with absolute precision.
It is impossible to imagine a new car without a perfect coloured coat. This is why we have built modern facilities in Mladá Boleslav and Kvasiny that maximally utilise automated and robotised manufacturing processes to paint ŠKODA cars. We also use the best quality materials that have a low environmental impact, including water-soluble topcoats.
ŠKODA Auto has a long history of producing cast moulds and forgings for engines and gearboxes. For example, as early as 1962 we became the first in Europe to use a high-pressure pouring process to produce intricate and complex aluminium cylinder blocks. Cast moulds from the aluminium foundry, grey cast iron and forgings from the forging facility in Mladá Boleslav are used not just in other factories that are part of the VW Group, but also at a number of local and international customers’ sites. We are continuously modernizing the foundries and equipping them with the latest technology and technical equipment.
ŠKODA Auto’s facility to produce engines, axles and gearboxes is one of the most advanced production bases within the entire VW Group. Production was launched here in 2001. We produce modern three-cylinder 1.2 HTP motors for ŠKODA, VW and Seat brand cars. Besides additional petrol and diesel motors, we also manufacture MQ 200 modern concept gearboxes for the VW Group and ŠKODA Auto. These gearboxes are notable for their ability to offer a comfortable and quiet ride. In addition, we manufacture front and rear axles for the Fabia, Laura and Roomster as well as rear axles for the Superb and Octavia at the facility.
ŠKODA Fabia's and Laura's roll off the production line in Mladá Boleslav. The Roomster and the brand's largest model, the Superb, are manufactured at the newly reconstructed and expanded factory branch in Kvasiny. Our subsidiary factory in Vrchlabí accumulates various parts of the steadily popular Octavia as well as some individual modifications and accessories (luxury L and K, Scout model, sports RS, 4x4 etc.). We also manufacture ŠKODA cars at additional international manufacturing and congregation plants (linked to ŠKODA plants). We never shortchange the most important specification - Quality. This is why each and every car we produce is subjected to a thorough exit check-up that tests all the systems and controls the quality of the final product before being dispatched. The cars also must pass a test drive on a special track featuring various road surfaces.
We pay particular attention to the level of care our importers (retailers) devote to customers. Not just high-quality cars, but also you, our customers, deserve only the best. Visit your ŠKODA retailer and find out for yourself just how much your satisfaction with our products matters to us. And we are ready to provide you with the same high-quality services as when you purchase the car even after you become the owner of one of our models. High-quality service, emissions tests, 24-hour assistance, original parts and accessories including installation, paint and body service, wheel and tyre storage and many more services – for us, these are all just a matter of course. You are important to us!
