- Acquisition of a large party of car body-parts

Saab Automobile Parts AB starts production of spare body-parts in Saab Automobile’s press- and body factory in Trollhättan. About 30 people including blue and white-collars will be working with planning and production of hoods, doors and fenders for Saab cars.
“We have been working intensely with this complex deal together with Saab Automobile’s bankruptcy administrators for some time”. A deal has now been signed with the administrators which allows Saab Parts to rent the press- and body factory in Trollhättan as well as the tools required. This means that we can produce body-parts as needed and again build those parts which has not been produced since Saab Automobile stopped proceeding cars, say Lennart Ståhl, CEO of Saab Automobile Parts AB. The planning of production-start is already underway and after a test-run the production-lines will start producing parts again. The next step is to assemble the parts. Production of car body-parts will continue until June 30th 2012.
The spare-parts company has now through a deal with the bankruptcy administrators acquired a large number of car body-parts which are already built. The amount also includes a large acquisition of other parts as well ranging up to 1500 different article numbers which is of great importance in an aftermarket perspective.
“These solutions together with recently made agreements with important suppliers is part of a significant program to regain a good supply of spare-parts both short and long-term, say Lennart Ståhl”.
