The history of the youngest of the three ŠKODA factories in the Czech Republic stretches back to the 1930s: the first two-door, four-seater body for the JAWA 700 automobile was completed there in 1934. The factory subsequently merged with the Mladá Boleslav automobile company after the Second World War. The plant became a specialist in low-volume, sports and utility vehicles.
Over the years, the classic post-war Superb sedan, the legendary Felicia cabriolet, the unique 1000 MBX Tudor and the renowned 110R and Rapid sports coupés saw the light of day there. Mention should also be made of the popular Pick-Up utility vehicle based on the Felicia model.
Nowadays, the company’s flagship, the Superb liftback with the unique Twindoor rear opening system, continues this tradition. As well as this, the elegant Superb estate and the stylish Yeti SUV also roll off the production lines in Kvasiny.
At present, three thousand employees work in Kvasiny. The eighteen-shift operations (six days a week) produce more than 140,000 automobiles per year. Due to the constantly increasing production volume, however, there are plans for the expansion of the production capacity in the near future. This should bring at least 5000 new jobs to the region and enable an increase in production to more than 200,000 vehicles per year.
