Skoda Auto is celebrating 110 years manufacturing motor vehicles in 2015. The company was originally founded in 1895 by Vaclav Clement and Vaclav Laurin who began from humble roots manufacturing bicycles. In 1905, they produced their first motor vehicle and in 1924 became Skoda after being taken over by Skoda Works. To this day, they have been manufacturing motor vehicles in the Czech Republic.
Skoda became a subsidiary of the worldwide auto giant Volkswagen Group in 1991 and is considered one of the toughest and most reliable auto brands across the globe.
In May 2010, Ali & Sons Co. LLC - one of the UAE’s leading commercial powerhouses and suppliers of premium automotive brands - acquired sole dealership rights to distribute Skoda throughout the UAE. Showrooms with after-sales facilities are located in Dubai and Al Ain.
In February 2014, Ali and Sons Co. LLC launched the first and the biggest Skoda (New & Pre-Owned ) CI compliant showroom in the region in Dubai.
