These two offices will be relocated to Trollhättan, Sweden as a continued consolidation and centralization of everything Saab to where it all began.

It’ll be nice to hear that there will be a new separate design facility in Trollhattan. I wonder if this will be utilizing the existing former site of the “Saab Advanced Concept Center” that is located near the Saab Car Museum?

There should be more information regarding this creditors meeting on Monday, April 6th at the town hall with the Vanersborg court.

Saab is gearing up for visit of potential buyers.

There are about 10 potential buyers and in the coming weeks most of them will visit Saab to have a look at the plant.

– We want to make a good impression, says Eric Geers, Saab Exec. Director

According to him no dates are decided upon yet but we can assume that there will be several visits in the coming weeks.

And even if Eric Geers does not want to comment on who the potential investors are, it appears that he is ready to receive both Swedish and foreign investors.

As TTELA has informed previously, it is not only investors associated with the car industry that have shown interest.

The visits are the next logical step to a possible sale of Saab Automobile. Guy Lofalk, from the reconstruction group informed TTELA last week that extensive information about Saab has already been handed over to the the highest ranked potential investors.

Having in mind that the potential investors will visit Saab there is plenty of activity at Saab. The manufacturing area and offices will be inspected and there will be a presentation of the company for the potential investors.

– We want to do a good impression and therefore we are carefully studying our business plan and preparing the presentation of our business says Eric Geers.

He compares the process, from the potential investors point of view, to that of buying a house.

– Imagine that you want to buy a house. You want all the information available so you can make a decision, says Eric Geers.

But are you, just like buying a house, cleaning and dressing things up just to make a extra good impression?

– No, that is not what this is about. We know what we have and we believe in our product and the business plan that we want to sell, says Eric Geers.
