Saab yesterday received the promised payment from its new partner Pang Da. Saab production boss Gunnar Brunius expects a start of the production to the middle of the next week, reports today Dagens Industri.
Yesterday, 800 Saab suppliers were contacted to ensure a restart next week. The larger suppliers such as Plastal, IAC Sweden and seat supplier Lear were invited for personal talks, other contacts were handled by email. The Financial Times Deutschland also has the relevant information. "I think the factory can start production next Wednesday after we have received the promised payments on Tuesday this week," Brunius told the Financial Times.
Saab will start production with a daily production of 230 to 240 vehicles. Svenake Berglie, president of the Association of Suppliers, believes that in the early days some partners will insist on immediate payment.
First, good news from Sweden. They will be really good only when the tapes are really running.
