AFTER a record sales year in 1992, Swedish Motors, the exclusive distributor of Saab vehicles in Hongkong and Macau and newly-authorised distributor in China, has further extended its operations in the territory with the inauguration of a new showroom in Tsim Sha Tsui and a new 30,000-square-foot service centre in Tsuen Wan. ''Swedish Motors is now among the most successful independent vehicle distributors in Hongkong,'' said chairman Mr Christer Agell. ''It has also recorded the highest market share for Saab in the world outside Sweden. ''The opening of our new showroom and service centre further extends our commitment to make Saab the top-selling European import to the territory in 1993. ''It reflects the need to satisfy spiralling sales demand, while ensuring Saab buyers have access to independent and specialised after-sales service.'' Swedish Motors' investment in the new showroom and workshop totals $8 million, and 50 highly-trained technicians have been hired or deployed to the new service centre, taking the company's total staff to 500. A total of 1,445 Saabs were registered in 1992, a 30 per cent increase over 1991 and a new sales record for the vehicle range in Hongkong and Macau. Sales turnover increased by 34 per cent from 1991 to $757 million in 1992, and the company enjoyed an after-tax profit of $81.3 million, an increase of 114 per cent. ''Saab ranks among the most significant Swedish imports to the territory, and the high sales have contributed to an overall awareness of the quality of Swedish design and engineering products in the territory,'' said the Swedish Consul-General, Mr Ulf Norstrom. Saab Automobile AB regional director Mr Bryan Hatter pointed out that Hongkong accounted for about 20 per cent of total Saab sales in the Asia-Pacific and Middle-East region in 1992. ''We are delighted to see Swedish Motors expand its operations in anticipation of further growth,'' Mr Hatter said. Mr Agell said the company had aggressive expansion and investment plans for Hongkong and China in 1993.
