About Škoda group ŠKODA VAGONKA a.s.


Škoda Vagonka is the direct successor of the tradition of manufacturing passenger rolling stock with a production program focused on products for electric units used in suburban transportation, motorized trains, light regional vehicles, and passenger connecting cars. It also provides the complete service, repair and modernization of vehicles and, last but not least, the sale of spare parts.

With a view to its other plans and maintaining its position on the market, the company will continue to focus attention on maintaining and enhancing its core business. This especially includes developing rolling stock in order to strengthen its capacity for innovation and to achieve the expansion of its product portfolio.

Purchasing subcontracted deliveries and material is also given considerable attention. Škoda Vagonka promotes the principles of cooperation, based on the quality of supply and respect for customer requirements. Other areas like manufacturing technology, investment, information technology, human resources policy and testing are also viewed by company management to be very important for the overall growth of the company.

In 2005, Škoda Vagonka was incorporated into the Škoda Transportation Group.

Manufacturing rail vehicles in Vagonka started at the beginning of the last century. At that time entrepreneur Adolf Schustala founded the joint-stock company "Staudinger Waggonfabrik A.G." based in Butovice u Studénka. According to the laws then in force, the company was officially founded on 12 December 1900 after it was entered in the Trade Register of the Regional Court in Nový Jičín.

Since that time, the company has manufactured a large number of various vehicles for passenger and freight rail transportation and other products and it has undergone a number of product, organizational and ownership changes. These culminated in the arrival of foreign owners of ČKD VAGONKA STUDÉNKA, a.s., and the spinning off of passenger rolling stock from the manufacturing and business plans of the company.

 Passenger rail vehicle manufacture was transferred to the new company ČKD VAGONKA, s.r.o., founded by ČKD PRAHA HOLDING, a.s., on 28 October 2000. On 1 January 2001, it was transformed into a publicly-traded company and three months later left Studénka for modernized facilities in Ostrava.

Since January 2005, ČKD VAGONKA has been part of ŠKODA HOLDING; in March 2008, the name of the company was changed to ŠKODA VAGONKA, a.s.
