PENTLAND COMPONENT PARTS APPOINTED DISTRIBUTOR FOR SAAB ORIGINAL PARTS

Despite it being 6 years since the last Saab was produced and shipped to the UK, there are still over 2,000 driving on Lothian roads today. Saab, recognized for its solidity, reliability, and all weather durability has always had a certain appeal with Scottish motorists over the years. However, with natural ageing, problems do develop and as Saab no longer exists, you may think they are at risk with everyday repairs.

Orio UK Ltd, who started trading in 2012, are the national distributor of Saab Original parts. Wholly owned by the Swedish Government, Orio have invested in key markets like the UK to maintain the availability of parts and preserve the Saab vehicle parc into the future.

Orio UK is proud to announce that Pentland Component Parts Ltd is now appointed as an authorized parts distributor of the Saab Original range, covering Edinburgh and Lothian postcodes from their 3 locations.

With direct access to Orio UK’s Distribution centre, carrying 1300 fastest moving lines, Pentland can now provide next day delivery and help reduce key turnaround time for garages and bodyshops maintaining Saabs. And to reinforce Orio’s quality standard, all Saab Original parts are warrantied against material defect for 3 years or 24,000 miles.

Alex Small, Director of Pentland Components Limited, said of the appointment “We are delighted to add the Saab Original range of parts to our already extensive portfolio of high quality all makes parts. Operating from our 3 sites across Edinburgh, we carry a range of 30,000 lines, which our fleet of 25 delivery vans can dispatch to your garage when you need them. Working with Orio, we can help you identify precisely what you need, as the car was originally built, from badges to bumpers, with a 3 year parts warranty."

Commenting on the appointment, Corin Richards (Orio UK Managing Director) added “I am particularly pleased to be working with Pentland Component Parts Ltd as distributors for Saab parts in the Edinburgh and Lothian region. In the local market place, Pentland have created a distinct identity, leading reputation for customer service and expanding customer base. Given their reach across Lothian, Pentland can help more Saabs to be matched up to an Original, warrantied part, particularly crash repair parts."

With the UK still enjoying 150,000 Saabs on the road, coupled with investment in better distribution, warranty and on-going press features, Orio hope to start changing the misperception that Saab parts availability is uncertain.
