Škoda Auto, the largest Czech car maker, the largest Czech firm by revenue, and the largest Czech employer also has another claim to fame in connection with us - Project Škoda Auto is one of our most visible orders of the past decade.
In 2009 representatives of the car maker decided on a massive rebranding of its showrooms in line with a strict set of rules so that the customer feels as comfortable as possible in each of them. The commercial potential of the tender we won in 2013 exceeded our expectations.
The worldwide expansion of Škoda Auto offered us the opportunity to work in various corners of the globe, which promised many new challenges.
Communication with the Mladá Boleslav car maker about possible cooperation with branches in New Zealand started in the spring of 2016. Due to the great distances involved, the New Zealanders had the opportunity to purchase furniture from neighbouring Australia. This market, of 32 dealers, had received permission to arrange the local production and purchase of goods. Despite this, the New Zealanders gave preference to purchasing furnishings from TECHO Prague, a fact we greatly appreciate. It took just a few brief but effective phone calls and everything was agreed for the goods to be despatched on TECHO’s longest export journey to date.
The entire process, from the initial order to subsequent tasks linked to the reconstruction of the showrooms, progressed smoothly. Fitters from TECHO were not sent to install the showroom furniture. The New Zealanders assembled and installed all the furniture themselves. The resulting work just required confidence in the quality of the supplied goods and in the provided installation manuals.
Škoda Auto and TECHO share a common goal in placing enduser satisfaction as their overriding priority. When a customer comes to choose a new car we want them to feel as comfortable as possible from the moment they set foot in the showroom. Škoda Auto well knows that the shining cars are not the only inducement to purchase acting on potential clients. As the car maker selected us as a partner for this complex task we were happy to undertake the client’s non-standard requests, even when the destination is on the other side of the world.
