PRAGUE, 18th December 2013 – TECHO, a.s., producer and supplier of office furniture and interiors, is one of just three prefered suppliers of interior furnishings for ŠKODA showrooms, and is thefore contributing to the international modernisation of ŠKODA AUTO showrooms as part of a new marketing presentation of their cars.
TECHO was selected from over 90 companies during a multi-round tender process that lasted almost a year. On the European scale this os one of the largest projects for office furniture producers and has a potential in the order of several billion crowns. During 2015 thousands of ŠKODA showrooms accross the world should be transformed.
„Winning this order is highly significant as from our perspective it is one of the most extensive projects, with deliveries accross the globe, that TECHO has ever worked on. I am aware that this will be a very demanding project, but we will be able to apply our hard won experience and supply our quality products. This is why ŠKODA AUTO selected us,“ says Jiří Kejval, Managing Director TECHO.
Up to the end of 2013 TECHO has furnished showrooms in 10 countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Great Britain, France, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Austria, Poland and Israel). At the current time deliveries are under negotistion to the United Arab Emerites, Russia and Ukraine. Next year TECHO anticipates a major increase in the number of orders due to the fact that in 2014 ŠKODA AUTO plans to modernise a large part of its sales network.
„In the coming two years TECHO must demonstrate its competitiveness alongside a further two preferred suppliers. It is down to us how we perform and whether we win over new clients with the potential to place additional orders in the future ,“ says Kejval.
TECHO is working on the project together with its parent company Royal Ahrend. Utilising the combined distribution network with experienced local teams enables negotiations to take place with the individual ŠKODA AUTO sales outlets (franscise holders) in each country. The sales outlets appreciate communication in their native language so that their requirements can quickly and accurately be met. They also appreciate the guarantee of an international standard of quality.
The objective of the new showroom concept is to create a representative and unmistakable environment that will give a younger and more dynamic impression. The modernisation concerns not only the furniture and seating, but also the external and internal signage, new flooring and lighting. TECHO uses design elements that are exceptionally flexible and can be adapted the the individual needs of each showroom. The basic collours are an elegant white and a refreshing green, which are complemented by a warm natural wood decor, Šumava, produced just for this project.
