As Saab Automobile completes its facilities consolidation, the Mölnlycke office in Pixbo/Göteborg office has finally closed and the approximately 100 people that worked there, have moved to the headquarters in Trollhättan, Sweden according to TTELA.

This process started last fall as reported here on Saab History and has taken time to completely phase out. At one point, these offices included up to 125 people including the former Saab design team.

Nearly 100 people have moved up to the Trollhättan factory in Mölnlycke.

Yesterday, it was those in finance & marketing that have moved from Pixbo in Mölnlycke to Trollhättan. In total, nearly 100 people have thus moved up to Trollhättan.

Saab’s business plan included efforts to concentrate its operations geographically to Trollhättan to have all operations and employees close to each other. Production has also taken home the manufacture and development of models from Germany and Austria to Trollhattan, which also will be emphasized in marketing which recognizes the mark as genuinely Swedish.

But even the more geographically related activities conducted in the office of Pixbo outside Gothenburg has gradually moved from there up to Trollhättan. Even before the design department had moved away and in the process of creating the new Saab so now people in financial, marketing department and in the aftermarket gradually started to move up to Trollhättan. Yesterday marked the last day for most of those who worked there in Pixbo and a move to Trollhättan.

For the Union, it is about one hundred members now been transferred to Trollhättan. A slight chance to work down there in the Gothenburg area will remain.

– There will be no teleworking, “says Ms Gustav’s information department.

    Too bad. Looked like a nice office complex to work in. Ah well, Saab’s loss (or restructuring, if we must be p.c.) is some other Swedish firm’s gain.

    It’ll keep everyone physically closer to one another, this should certainly help for collaboration.

    I look at it as a positive.
