Our activities

Valeo has been present in the Czech Republic since 1995 with the first production plant in Rakovník, followed by two other production site openings in Žebrák (2001) and Humpolec (2002) manufacturing air conditioning systems, exhaust gas recirculation systems, interior control panels and front-end modules. The factory in Podbořany (2006) manufactures hydraulic clutch and brake actuators. The Development activity was established in 2002 in Prague, initially as an engineering office focused on mechanical design of air conditioning units and interior control panels. In 2013 the activity was extended by the development of sensors, software and systems for automated driving and automated parking, followed by the opening of a test track in Milovice enabling high and low-speed maneuvers. In 2019 Valeo carried out its two biggest investments in the country: the extension of the Žebrák plant to launch the production of battery coolers for electric vehicles and the opening of a second factory in Rakovník dedicated to sensors and interior control panels.
