Saab's manufacturing will restart on Friday

A production restart at Saab in Trollhättan on Friday was confirmed from Saab late last night.

"We have decided to restart on Friday and will do everything to make it happen", Gunnar Brunius, Vice President Purchasing & Manufacturing at Saab Automobile told Dagens Industri.

As reported earlier today, a delegation from Chinese future part owner of Saab, Pang Da, will be at the Trollhättan facilities on Friday to inspect the factory and development facilities.

This afternoon Swedish Radio quotes Gunnar Brunius saying "Pieces are falling into place one by one, and right now I see no major storm clouds in the horizon that will prevent this [production restarting] from happening".
