Good news comes from Sweden in our mailbox after work. Orio AB, formerly Saab Automobile Parts AB, reports its quarterly figures. Accordingly, sales of original Saab spare parts remained stable compared to the same quarter last year.
For the second quarter of 2014 Nyköping reported a turnover of 28.8 million €. Sales of original Saab spare parts remain consistently stable in all markets, with Orio aiming for additional market share in this segment. Earnings declined slightly to 3.8 million in the second quarter.
At the same time, they are actively working on further expanding the range of products to include other brands and expanding the customer base. Together with a range of technical and logistics services, the company sees itself well positioned for expansion.
Orio AB employs 260 staff in Nyköping, Orio secures additional 50 jobs at the former Saab headquarters in Trollhättan. The German subsidiary Saab supplies drivers from Eschborn in Hesse Germany and Austria with spare parts.
Anyone who has not read enough about the Saab theme after this eventful and dramatic week can discover the story of a Saab 9000 company car on Saturday on our Youngtimer Blog.
Allen Saab drivers, wherever they go, a sunny weekend!
