The path is steep, but Saab has been climbing uphill step by step since December 19th. A lot has happened in a positive way after the “black day”. The supply of spare parts is at a pleasing level; new body parts are manufactured in the press shop in Sweden. These are just a few examples of good development.
In Germany, the Saab branch now leaves Carl-Benz-Strasse in Frankfurt / Fechenheim. The rooms there were a provisional after the move from Rüsselsheim. From the beginning, the locations were not planned for a long stay. It now goes in the direction of Taunus, back to the area where Saab had its home in the glory days.
From the 2. May is the German branch in Eschborn. The adress is:
Saab Automobile Parts AB
Mergenthalerallee 73 - 75
Our favorite brand is taking another step towards the future and more will follow. Currently, the Saab dealer list has been revised in Sweden so that the current status can be found on the Saab website.
Attentive observers were able to follow on the Internet that intensive work was carried out on the pages. A complete relaunch of the website is in progress and the premiere is coming soon. Under the slogan “We take care of your Saab”, the offer is tailored to the service area of Saab Parts AB and to new business projects. I really liked the first designs and they fit our cult brand.
With the move to the Taunus Saab starts into a new era. GM is history and also the provisional in Fechenheim. The Taunus, with its traditionally high Saab density, is more than a symbol of better Saab times. Therefore something inside talk.
Saab Germany was previously at home in Bad Homburg / Taunus. Back then, you had many employees, several branches, and Saab Germany was a successful importer as an independent GmbH. Then came the slow decline and in the final the move to Rüsselsheim. With the “Direct Dealer Concept” from GM, more and more competencies were shifted from Germany to Sweden. The German company lost its importance until the GmbH was dissolved and Saab Germany became a dependent branch.
Saab Germany, we hear from Sweden, should become an independent company again. This would strengthen the German market. Decisions and competencies would be at home in Eschborn. With the team of Saab boss Jan-Philipp Schuhmacher, who fights tirelessly for the brand, then much would be possible.
It could be, sometime in the future, again an independent importer for cars from Trollhättan in the Taunus at home. A nice idea!
Good Saab news for today. My small, quite Swedish inauguration gift for the Saab crew is already ready and will be handed over soon ...
