Two former Eastern Western Group employees have set up their own Saab specialist workshop.
Perth Cars is a newly formed company headed by Chris Champion, the previous aftersales manager at Western Saab, and William Thomson, a master technician from the same business.
The business has been appointed an approved Saab service centre by Saab Parts UK and is based on the same area of Manson Road as the former Western Saab outlet.
Corin Richards, managing director of Orio UK, the exclusive distributor of Saab OE parts in the UK, said: “There are over 2,000 Saabs in the central belt of Scotland, and Perth is a key location to have a service and parts centre. Saab has been represented in Perth for over 20 years, and with such a large owner base it is important to ensure continuity."
Chris Champion, director of Perth Cars (Saab), added: “We have established the new business to reassure Saab owners in Scotland that their cars will continue to be cared for to the highest standard.
"With owners at the centre of everything we do, we are working closely with the Saab Parts team to match quality car care to great value. Furthermore, as an authorised Saab service and parts centre we can provide access to Saab’s national campaigns, plus a 2 year warranty against as we use original Saab parts.”
