Story behind the Czech brand Škoda Auto:
Established in 1895, the family business of Laurin and Klement in Mladá Boleslav originally produces bicycles, motorcycles and, starting in 1905, automobiles. The company merged with Škoda Plzen in 1925, which was followed by its rapid growth. The company produced cars with many fine details and also achieved success at international races. In 1991, Škoda Auto returned to the international market under the wings of the Volkswagen Group. Today the company enjoys a prominent standing on the market and sells over 550,000 of its Fabia, Octavia, Superb and Roomster models each year. Over 80% of these cars are exported to more than 90 countries around the world, and Škoda Auto remains the country‘s largest exporter. (www.skoda-auto.cz)
