His inaugural visit was completed by our blog Project Paul in Eschborn. Because Orio Germany is responsible for the spare parts supply of our vehicles, the road inevitably led us in the direction of Eschborn.
The route could almost be called historical, because Saab Germany was at home in the Taunus at a time when Paul was still a new car. Who knows, maybe the path to search for clues will lead us in this direction again soon? The journey to Eschborn is relaxed. The Saab 9-5 is a pleasant long-distance glider, its comfort is high. The noise level on the motorway is pleasingly low. It is hard to believe that the Saab could have been a case for the recycler not too long ago.
I am warmly welcomed in Eschborn. A visit to Orio is always a journey of discovery. What is there to tell, what are the plans? The “Saab Original” booth had its premiere a few weeks ago at the inauguration of Ralf Muckelbauer's new car dealership in Bamberg, Then followed the company anniversary of Saab Service Frankfurt, now the Orio team showed the Saab flag at a meeting in Austria. The next date is the big, international Saab meeting in Dinslaken in August.
Orio revises the European workshop directory
Orio lives Saab. The commitment is not limited to spare parts supply, whose statistics show the highest availability rate in years. Apart from actions, the customer magazine, the sponsoring of events and the presence on site, you also take care of the little things of everyday life. Summer time is vacation time. Saab drivers are traveling in Europe, and if it comes to a breakdown, then you are looking for the nearest workshop, which should have Saab competence if possible. For this reason, the European workshop directory is currently under revision at Orio Germany.
The update is coming soon and will continue to be free Download to disposal. Expressed, the directory fits into any glove box and is a useful companion during the vacation trip.
What always interests me is the future. Orio is Saab, but the Saab market is limited. Consistently one expands further branches of business. Spare parts for vehicles of other brands are offered under the Orio logo with 3 years warranty. A unique selling point that pulls. The distribution of Saab Original and Orio products is strictly separated. Saab partners, of course, have full access to the full portfolio, but Orio Partners does not have Saab Genuine Parts. This protects the service network and keeps Saab attractive as a brand.
Of course there was still time for an entry in the logbook and a souvenir photo. Orio CEO Jan Philipp Schuhmacher, former Saab Germany boss, signed with a personal dedication. Our visit is thus documented for all time. The logbook will continue to fill, it goes with Paul 2018 to a new owner.
