Time 8:17 am, June 15, 2012

SWEDISH firm Saab’s parts operations will continue to operate as an independent company, it has been announced.

Following the announcement of the sale of Saab to NEVS, the Swedish National Debt Office announced that the State will take over the ownership of Saab Automobile Parts AB and its global subsidiaries including the UK and North American market.

Since the bankruptcy of Saab Automobile AB in December 2011, Saab Parts UK has continued to provide its network of 88 Saab 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.’
