Saab parts UK secure

Saab parts UK continues to operate

Published:  15 June, 2012

FOLLOWING AN ANNOUNCEMENT on Wednesday 13th June that the administrators of Saab Automobile AB had signed an agreement with electric car maker National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB for the sale of Saab, the Swedish government announced it will take over the ownership and running of Saab Automobile Parts AB. This secures the future of global subsidiaries, including the UK firm.

Since the bankruptcy of the parent company in December 2011, Saab Parts UK has continued to provide its network of 88 authorised repairers with Saab genuine parts, accessories and technical support.

Corin Richards, Managing Director of Saab Parts UK, said: “There are around 188,000 Saab cars on UK roads that we need to provide a service for and we will continue to offer customers a parts and customer care facility as well as attractively priced Saab used cars.  We now also look forward to working with our parent company, Saab Automobile Parts AB, and the new owner of Saab Automobile AB on future business opportunities once the sale process is completed.”
