The Czech Republic plays an important role in the automotive industry and related sectors. This is due primarily to its exceptional location, good infrastructure and skilled workforce. The country is home to three key vehicle manufacturers – Škoda Auto, TPCA and Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech. At the same time, it has excellent business opportunities for suppliers and is prepared to strengthen its position as one of the leading European centres for design and research and development activities in the mobility sector. With its history of precision manufacturing dating back more than a century, top-level research and support for highly innovative companies and ideas, the Czech Republic has the necessary prerequisites to maintain its position among the leaders of the sector in the future and to become a centre of future mobility.
Since the early 20th century, the engineering industry remains one of the cornerstones of the Czech economy. Stable economic environment, high level of manufacturing technological maturity and cutting-edge R&D programs contribute to the creation of the optimal climate for business establishment and further development. This fact has been recognized by the world's major players such as Siemens, ABB, Honeywell or Daikin, who have invested in various facilities in the Czech Republic.
