There is good news for our blog project and its future! With the car dealership Himberg we have for the first time a blog supporters from Austria on board. The story behind Mario Milincic and his team is unusual and typical of Saab.
Since its start in January 2015, the Himberg dealership has been writing a unique success story. The Saab market in Austria has been on the upswing since then, and a small Saab boom is starting. After years of stagnation, the country was considered difficult for the brand. That is past. Saab sales in the Alpine republic are increasing continuously, reports Orio Germany, our supplier for original spare parts. We can find out in Austria how it is possible for a brand that has not produced vehicles for a long time to write success stories.
Car dealership Himberg. We live Saab.
Mario Milincic comes from a typical Saab family. His father worked for Saab Oberlaa for many years, and he too started in 1999 in the service area of the Saab agency in Vienna. The legendary Saab virus was anchored in the genes and the step into independence was inevitable. After the sad end of Saab Oberlaa in April 2014, the opportunity had come: the Himberg dealership opened 2015 in January his goals.
It has been around 2 years and 6 months since then and a meteoric rise has taken place. The start-up quickly became one of the most important Saab partners in Austria. The Himberg dealership is one of Orio's top 3 partners today. Saab is actively lived, the coordination with the team in Eschborn is close, the loyalty to the brand is infinite. Customers feel that, and they reward it. Saab is absolutely at the center of this.
Saab vehicles are purchased, rebuilt or serviced, and further marketed. The choice for customers and friends is great, almost every wish is fulfilled. Mario Milincic himself is said to own a collection of around 25 vehicles of the cult brand from Trollhättan.
