Negotiations remain before new Saabs are built
Workers at the Saab factory in Trollhättan will return to work on Thursday, Swedish Radio News reports. But production will not start again for a while.
According to Victor Muller of the owner Spyker Cars, Saab has lost 4000 cars that it should have produced since the beginning of April, had the plant not been forced to close down, due to lack of space parts. But Muller says it is still possible to make the planned number of cars this year.
After the green light for new loans from one Chinese and one Bahamas-registered company, Saab now hopes to start renegotiations with suppliers. Svenåke Berglie, CEO of the suppliers' organisation FGK tells the news agency TT that he expects Saab has some 200 suppliers to talk to. He does not expect production to start for another two weeks.
