Škoda is building a new, energy-efficient press shop at its main factory in Mladá Boleslav. Construction has now begun on the M4 hall. In spring 2016, the VW Group automaker will install a servo press line in the new hall that will be able to press aluminium body panels for the first time. The new facility is expected to go into operation in February 2017 at a cost of EUR86m (US$93.47m).
