The appointment of Saabtech Welwyn and West Motor Company Ltd. takes Saab Parts UK’s operating network to 88 authorised repairers.
Saabtech Welwyn, situated on 36, Brownfields, Welwyn Garden City, opens for business on Saturday March 31, 2012, and will offer full servicing facilities, MOT testing, body shop repairs and an extensive aftersales department supplying parts and accessories.
This new authorised repairer is no stranger to Saab owners in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire as it was previously an independent Saab specialist located in Stevenage.
Saabtech Welwyn takes over the former retail site of Squire Furneaux. Its directors, Ian Ward and Jenny Eldred, both previously worked in Saab dealerships, set up Saabtech UK Limited as an independent specialist in Stevenage in January 2007, and offer owners a one-stop shop for all their Saab needs.
Eldred said: ‘We have an open door policy for all Saab owners and look forward to welcoming new and existing customers to Saabtech Welwyn. We pride ourselves in offering a personalised service to all our customers and unrivalled expertise in servicing and maintaining their cars.’
The second new authorised repairer to be appointed by Saab Parts UK in March is West Motor Company Ltd in London, and offers all Saab aftersales facilities including servicing, MOT, bodywork and diagnostics.
Andrew Joaman, formerly dealer principal at Saab Fulham, and now heading up West Motor Company Ltd. said: ‘We are very proud that our new business in Barnes is joining Saab Parts UK’s network of authorised repairers. We have a large Swedish community in Barnes and look forward to welcoming them and all Saab owners to our new showroom.
Corin Richards, managing director of Saab Parts UK, said: ‘I am delighted to welcome Saabtech Welwyn and West Motor Company Ltd into our network of authorised repairers. Both businesses have a wealth of Saab experience and will maintain the standards of excellence that our customers expect.’
