Škoda Works ( ; today Škoda Investment, a.s. plus a variety of other companies in the Czech and Slovak republics whose names still contain the name Škoda) was the largest industrial enterprise in Austria-Hungary and later in Czechoslovakia, one of its successor states. It was also one of the largest industrial conglomerates in Europe in the 20th century. The current successor Škoda Holding is focused on transport vehicle manufacturing; some companies no longer connected with it use the brand Škoda in other industries.
