Post Volvo bidding for (parts of) Saab

Filed under: China, Etc., Europe, Plants/Manufacturing, Saab, Volvo, Earnings/Financials, Geely

Volvo is reportedly interesting in getting out its checkbook in search of a production parts bargain over at Saab. No, the 9-5 likely won't be wearing a Volvo badge any time soon, but the tooling that helped build parts for the big sedan could one day be in a Volvo factory.

SaabsUnited quotes an unnamed source who states that Volvo is interested in purchasing tooling from the Saab bankruptcy estate. The source reiterated that Volvo isn't interested in any production at the Trollhättan factory, adding that the purchased parts would likely travel to China for use by Volvo owner Geely.

While we're putting this story in the rumormill for now, purchasing expensive tooling at a fire-sale discount sounds like a potentially brilliant idea for Geely and Volvo. Volvo could soon begin building vehicles in China to expand its presence in the emerging market, and it always helps to get such a project off the ground with some high-quality parts that obviously haven't been used much lately.Volvo bidding for (parts of) Saab originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 24 Feb 2012 10:59:00 EST.

Don't blame Volvo for Saab situation. The tooling is on sale so it would be stupid for Volvo not to try to get it if they can get a good deal on it.
