I’ve just had an email come through to me from a guy at Saab, referring to the recent article here about Saab Australia recommencing operations on February 1 next year.
He wanted to respond briefly to a question that was asked several times in comments – what about New Zealand?
I’m pleased to pass on that Saab Australia will be responsible for New Zealand as well, but it’ll probably just go by the name Saab Australia (to facilitate the use of normal sized business cards, letterheads, and for the preservation of syllables generally).
Saab Oz will hit the ground officially on February 1st, 2011. I’m not privy to when the first visits or deliveries to NZ will be, but Kiwis should be pleased that Feb 1st will mark the official recommencement of Saab activities in your part of the world as well!
