While automaker Saab and its North American arm Saab Cars North America may be bankrupt, the legacy of the Swedish brand lives on in the thousands of Saab cars scattered all over the world.  

To ensure owners, some of which may have only purchased their Saabs this year, are looked after, a separate division to the now bankrupt automaker, Saab Automobile Parts AB, is still operating and continues to provide Saab Genuine Parts to more than 1,200 repair facilities worldwide.

Saab Automobile Parts AB has now launched a new North American subsidiary to service Saab cars in the U.S. and Canada.

The new subsidiary, North America Distribution Services Inc., is incorporated in all states of the U.S. and is headquartered in Michigan.

The establishment of a new U.S. subsidiary is the latest action as Saab Automobile Parts AB works to ensure Saab owners around the world have access to a full range of professionally delivered aftersales services. The company recently signed an agreement with Saab’s creditors to use the automaker’s press and body shop to manufacture replacement body parts.

A second agreement was also signed to acquire a large number of fully assembled parts and other car components. On top of that, the company also recently signed new contracts with key suppliers and these are all steps in a comprehensive program to ensure a good supply of spare parts for Saab cars, both in the short and longer term.

The North American market remains the single biggest market for Saab cars with roughly half a million examples still in use on American and Canadian roads, according to Saab Automobile Parts AB’s CEO Lennart Stahl.
