Like the news from last Wednesday said, Nevs celebrated the ground breaking yesterday in Tianjin, China, There will they build facilitates for production and R&D,  with a capacity for 200 000 units/year.

Chairman Kai Johan Jiang was on site together with president Mattias Bergman, and they even had more news to come with; a new partner. This new partner is Teamsun, a it-company based in Beijing. Together with State Research Information Technology (SRIT), Teamsun and Nevs has registered two new joint ventures, one for production and one for R&D. The investments in the joint venture will be initially 1 billion RMB/CNY (~161 million USD) respectively 200 millions RMB/CNY (~32.2 million USD). At the same time, Nevs announces a agreement with Bank of China that grants Nevs a credit of 10 billion RMB/CNY (~1.61 billion USD) to support Nevs business in China.

So what now? Nevs is as we see on their way back in business, but this is only a small step. There will be many more small (and of course some big) steps before we all can breathe out, and the Stallbacka factory again produce cars again. We can only cross our fingers, if the good news continues as it has done so far this spring I hope it not will be the last positive news we hear from the guys at Nevs this summer!

NEVS announces intention to lay off employees


This morning NEVS announces following in a press release:

Nevs announces intention to lay off up to 200 employees due to lack of work, as thedecision to re-start production will be further delayed.

Nevs has retained the permanent workforce for production since the production was stopped in the end of May this year. The reason for this has been that the company would be ready to quickly start up production, upon such decision.

The prerequisites for making a decision to start up production are to have long-term secured funding and a business plan that has been worked through together with a new majority owner.

The ongoing discussions on collaboration and ownership structure, which has not yetresulted in a binding agreement, indicates that the decision for a start-up of productionwill take time.

With this there is a redundancy of the workforce. Therefore, Nevs’ management has decided to hand in a notice of intention to lay off up to 200 employees to the Swedish Public Employment Service.

The terminations will take place in September in order to rapidly reduce the company’s costs during the reorganization period. This is a step in the reorganization plan that the administrator will present on the creditors meeting on October 8.

Nevs intends to retain the remaining staff to maintain the plant in good condition, to beprepared for the new production, after such a decision is taken, and to continuedeveloping new products.

We have something planned for everyone – place your car in the People’s Choice or Concourse Show Fields, listen to one of the many tech sessions planned including discussing Vintage SAAB Performance, discussing early SAAB rallying, SAAB tuning seminar, Ask A Mechanic, and much more!

A dyno will be on site for those of you who have made mods and want to measure your horsepower on site at this event. We will have a parts tent brought to us by our many vendors and sponsors as well as a swap meet for those who wish to sell parts individually.

Adding to the excitement is an Advanced Driving Academy which will be offered as an option to registered participants at Shannonville Racetrack on July 2, 2014.

There will also be a special presentation with updates on parts availability and service points. Don’t miss the chance to learn about the viability of keeping your SAAB on the road. The culminating night of festivities is the Awards Banquet with live music, and special guests.

Press Release, UK, Saab Secure.

astley saab yeovil

The modern Saab is an extremely complex piece of machinery with thousands of sophisticated moving parts.

Within the engine alone there are a huge number of components from camshafts and cam followers to piston pins and rings. Then there are other intricate systems from the electrics and brakes to the steering and suspension.

It’s this advanced engineering that makes a Saab a dream to drive, and while your Saab is very reliable, occasionally repairs are necessary and can be an unexpected expense. With this in mind it’s well worth taking out a Saab Secure Warranty for your vehicle.

It will cover most original mechanical and electrical components of the vehicle and offers you peace of mind for the road ahead.

Saab Secure is available for all Saab’s less than 10 years old with different levels of cover for you to take out.

A Saab Secure Warranty is available from just £279.
Flexible warranty cover ranging from a 1 year to a 5 year policy
Unlimited mileage
Instant cover from day one

Please contact your nearest Saab dealer for more details, find them on line, or ring Jerry on 01935 426 701 and he will help you find your most local.
