Škoda Group has acquired 100% of the shares of Czech-based Cegelec a.s. from VINCI Energies, a member of the multinational industrial group VINCI. This acquisition will allow Škoda Group to expand its portfolio with additional components for various public transport vehicles and an interesting range of services. Furthermore, Škoda Group will gain a highly experienced team of employees. The company Cegelec a.s. will continue its business activities within Škoda Group under the new name Electric Components a.s.

“Škoda Group is undergoing long-term development, which includes strengthening our R&D, production, and service capacities.
