Skoda UK is brand's 'top importer'

Skoda UK is brand's 'top importer'

Skoda has voted its UK operation as its Importer of the Year for the second time in three years.

Importers of Skoda cars from all over the world congregated on its Prague headquarters for the awards.

The company's Polish and German arms took second and third places, respectively.

The company's after-sales award was handed to Skoda Poland, the sales award went to its Czech Republic operation, and its Russian arm offered the best customer treatment.

However, the most prestigious award was Importer of the Year and Werner Eichhorn, Skoda board member for sales and marketing, presented it to Skoda UK's brand director Alasdair Stewart.

He said to win it twice in three years was a fitting reward for the hard work put in by everyone at Skoda UK's Milton Keynes base and its network of dealers across Britain.
