The Saab Automobile factory continues production today as I mentioned it would earlier, after a 4-week hiatus according to Saab Automobile as indicated on TTELA.

“The production run will also include a few all new Saab 9-5’s as well” according to Eric Geers, Saab Automobile’s Global Communications Manager.

At 8 o’clock, the first Saab 9-3 Convertible in history was built in Trollhättan, following years in Graz, Austria, and initially in Uusikaupunki, Finland. I bet the factory workers were pretty excited to built their first convertible ever in Sweden today!

In addition to the convertible, the 9-3 model range and the old 9-5 wagon will continue to be produced.

Here is the article below loosely translated:

First convertible built!

TROLLHÄTTAN amidst of all the turmoil surrounding the future took Saab Automobile in Trollhättan in to write a little company history on Monday morning.

– The first 9-3 Convertible in Trollhättan produced here today, “said Eric Geers, Communications Director at Saab Automobile.

– It was on the line at 8 o’clock.

9-3 Cab has been returned to Trollhattan, having previously been in Austria.

The start of it and other models on Monday morning came after a four-week break. It was so good it was now, a typical day at work for employees.

– We are 9-3 and one or another of the old 9-5, “said Paul Akerlund, club chairman for IF Metall.

– It can also be one of the new 9-5, “he says.

But when it is on the Test series in different pace and with more manual tasks than it could be in the future.

Parts of the tools necessary for the production of the new 9-5 is still in Germany at the Opel plant in Rüsselsheim.

While production of the drug once again in Trollhättan, Sweden on Monday morning was GM’s liquidation documents at Companies Registration Office desk in Sundsvall assessment.

– It is too early to say when we are ready to appoint a liquidator, “
said Per Nordstrom, general counsel at the SCRO.
– But it will be ready within the next few days.

Until the liquidator has been appointed managing director Jan-Ake Jonsson, Saab’s board of directors and continued control over the leadership of Saab.
The liquidation described in Trollhättan happen in an orderly manner and the aim is to achieve a so-called solvent liquidation, which means ability to pay against the creditors and customers, while the closure is done.

It is also apparent that Saab’s board of directors and CEO must not thwart a liquidation.
