April 15, 2014 in NEVS, Press Releasse, SAAB Parts

National Electric Sweden AB, Nevs, has ensured the spare parts supply for the newly manufactured Saab cars by an agreement with Orio AB, former Saab Automobile Parts AB.

The signed agreement now ensures the supply of spare parts for the new Saab customers. The global distribution agreement guarantees that spare parts for the new Saab 9-3 cars manufactured by Nevs in Trollhättan, Sweden, can also be ordered from Orio AB. For service and repairs as well as warranty measures, Nevs guides its customers to the existing Saab Service Centers.

“Our new Saab customers can now be confident that the long term supply of spare parts is ensured through established Saab service centers. Both Orio AB and Nevs are glad to forge closer ties between the two companies, as our agreement gives all Saab owners a high service level”, said Jonas Hernqvist, Director Sales and Marketing of Nevs.

On December 2nd Orio and NEVS signed a letter of intent now they have signed the final agreement which is good for new and old Saab drivers. New drivers get access to a network of well educated Saab garages and mechanics, and old Saab drivers have now the certainty that Orio is here to stay and will have some more weight when asking a supplier to produce some spares for older Saab cars.
