Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Vrchlabí, 10 October 2019 - This year, the #vrchlabi plant is celebrating its 155th anniversary since it opened in 1864. It has been part of ŠKODA AUTO since 1946, who initially made cars there. In 2012, over a period of 18 months, the Czech company then comprehensively modernised the former car factory, turning the site into a progressive component plant. In 2015, #vrchlabi was awarded 'Factory of the Year' for transformation of the production so quickly and for the site's dynamic development. Today, the roughly 1,000 members of staff based at the foot of the Giant Mountains build approximately 2,200 DQ 200 automatic direct-shift transmissions every single day.
