President’s message

Welcome to Kia Motors Slovakia’s website!

The year 2004 was a milestone in Slovak history. Accession of Slovakia to the European Union naturally prepared existing market for the entry of big investors. The year 2004 meant a milestone also in Kia’s history. Kia has become the fastest growing automaker in the world. We want to continue in this trend and our vision is to become one of the world's premier automotive brands. With our plant in Zilina we will be able to increase our market share not only in Europe but also worldwide.

We believe that there is no challenge or ambition too high for a big team we call Kia Motors, neither for Kia Motors Slovakia as a true member of the Kia family. We are committed, more than ever, to make outstanding results and achieving our high goals.

Kia aims to be responsible and respectable corporate citizen in community we live in. I would like to express my appreciation and belief that our company will bring benefits for the country where Kia plant stands and produces. I look forward to manage new challenges that lie ahead of us. Kia is a great global company and we will succeed in making dreams come true together.
