Ukrainian Charitable Foundation "Krona" is a part of "NIKO" since 2007. "Krona" is a tool for the development and realization of all the Group’s charitable and social projects.
"NIKO" Group is working hard to attract funding for major projects. For example, the company invests more than 40 million dollars into the construction of automotive megapolis "NIKO" that is located on Boryspil highway 4 km from the international airport "Boryspil". The complex will consist of 5 conceptual dealerships, an area for sale of used cars, and one of the largest in Ukraine complex for painting and straightening.
