The number of places is limited. We will

WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO BREAKFAST
WITH MEMBER OF THE ŠKODA AUTO BOARD OF
DIRECTORS FOR PRODUCTION AND LOGISTICS
DR. MICHAEL OELJEKLAUS. THE EVENT WILL TAKE
PLACE ON 5 FEBRUARY 2020 STARTING AT
8:30 A.M. AT THE LEAN CENTRE IN MLADÁ BOLESLAV.
AS PART OF LAST YEAR’S COLLECTIVE
BARGAINING, IT WAS DECIDED THAT
ALL EMPLOYEES WILL BE ABLE TO
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF REUSABLE
BOTTLES MADE FROM MODERN
TRITAN MATERIAL FOR DRINKING
AT WORK IN THE YEAR 2020.
They can be filled with tap water or water
from soda makers (not all THZ category
employees had this option last year).
The bottles will be distributed from 24
January throughout the year from
kiosks and restaurants of factory caterers.
Distribution itself will be very simple.
Employees only need to pick up a bottle in
a restaurant or kiosk and then place their
MFA card onto a card reader and the bottle
is issued. Every ŠKODA AUTO employee
and agency worker is entitled to one free
bottle for the year 2020.
If employees need a new bottle due to loss
or damage, they can purchase a bottle at
their own expense over the counter.
During breakfast, you will be able to ask Dr. Oeljeklaus questions about ŠKODA AUTO and production and logistics, as
well as to discuss your opinions and suggestions on current
issues. Discussions will be held in Czech and German.

KAMIQ CITY SUV AVAILABLE
IN THE SCOUTLINE VERSION
What was initially just a sports car is soon to be available in
more a robust version. ŠKODA is increasing its range of models
with the new Kamiq Scoutline. It is the company’s first SUV to
be produced in this version. After the MONTE CARLO lifestyle
variant, the new KAMIQ SCOUTLINE puts its money, among
other things, on matt black fender trim covers, robust silver
bodywork elements, large 17 or 18-inch aluminium wheels and
full-LED tail lights. The city SUV with an adventurous appearance
will be unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show.
Its market launch is set to take place in summer 2020.
A NEW EXHIBITION, THE
GLORIOUS TWENTIES / ON
THE ROAD TO A MODERN
CAR FACTORS, IS OPEN TO
THE PUBLIC AT THE ŠKODA
MUZEUM IN MLADÁ BOLESLAV UNTIL 26 APRIL 2020.
The exhibition offers unusual insights into major technical innovation in the 1920s. It commemorates the construction of a new
factory and the introduction of
conveyor belt production lines,
which started the rise of our brand
name to the domestic number
one. You will also be able to see interesting period photos, graphics
and artefacts, projections of authentic videos, a retro car configurator and historical ŠKODA cars.
On top of that, there are visual explanations of period production
processes, including revolutionary
changes in bodywork painting and
a number of items used for production in that era, which might
seem curious today.
