Skoda Transportation to Acquire Ekova Electric

“The key news is that with the signing of the contract, not only was a decision made about the future of EKOVA ELECTRIC, but the decision to build a new unique competence center in Ostrava was also definitively made. It will focus on traditional repairs and modernization of vehicles for Dopravní podnik Ostrava, but also for other transport companies. Thanks to the expertise and many years of experience of our employees, we will also manufacture new trams, electric buses and trolleybuses for current and future Škoda customers.

“We are going to invest significantly in the modernization of the plant and technological equipment. Škoda’s entry into the Ostrava-based company will help stabilize and create new jobs in the Moravian-Silesian Region, which is certainly good news for the entire region in the current difficult economic situation.”
