Saab in the heart at Lensch & Bleck
Hamburg is and was a Saab stronghold. We bought our last brand new Saab in 2011 from Lensch & Bleck. Actually, that was my impression at the time, an Opel dealership with a little Saab in the background. But the Saab brand still matters, and advertising hit my table a few days ago.
Lensch & Bleck still has the Saab workshop team on board and continues to offer expertise for the Swedish brand. At the same time, they ask for the customer data to be updated and give away vouchers for workshop services of up to € 50,00. Saab as an economic factor, even 5 years after the end of the brand? Dedicated workshops have full order books this year too, and there are always waiting times before you get an appointment.
Saab as a business model works. However, only where the brand really lives. Because we Saab drivers are demanding in this regard.
Saab in the air.
Saab classics and youngtimers are popular. Not only when they have four wheels, but also when they fly. The Sanicole Airshow took place in Belgium from September 9th to 11th. Saab AB was there, also with flying Saab classics. The brand's roots are in aircraft construction, and until the end of the 80s automobile construction was a division of Saab AB Nyköping.
The Saab 29 Tunan could be seen in Belgium - the first Swedish jet to break the sound barrier. Also the Saab JA 37 Viggen, whose silhouette is unmistakable, and the Saab JAS 39 Viggen. Pictures of the flying Saabs and the other participants can be seen on the airshow's homepage.
Orio at the Automechanika
It was a long way from Saab Automobile Parts AB to Orio AB. Today, Orio is a modern company whose origins lie in the Saab brand, but which is expanding strongly into other markets. Orio sees itself as a modern logistician and supplier for many brands and offers a guarantee of 3 years on spare parts.
Orio Germany celebrated a premiere this week. For the first time the German branch was represented with a booth at the Automechanika. The B2B fair takes place until the 17.09 in the Frankfurt exhibition halls. The fair appearance of the Orio Germany GmbH is located in hall 4.0, booth F31.
