Meanwhile winter has started in Western Europa and in Brazil they enjoy nice summer temperatures, Volkswagen has turned another page in its own history book. At the time you’ll be reading this the end of the Bay window bus will be a fact… With a nice ‘last edition’ the era of the ‘Combi’ will end. It’s a normal evolution for a car manufacturer. The very last Volkswagen with the engine in the back is no longer, damned for all time. As supplier of parts, it’s though a bit frightening for us. Now we are all at our own, no Volkswagen anymore… Sorry.
However VW in Brazil assured us fortunately that the supply of parts will continue for a while. Hopefully this while we last a ‘while’… afterwards we’ll have to evaluate what’s important and what we have to reproduce so that we can assure that your darling can drive for many more years…. That’s our mission.
Socially and economically speaking these last three months can definitely be called turbulent. Nobody or nothing is certain… So just continue what you’re doing , that will be the message. Working at ‘our’ network and securing ‘our’ market will be our principal mission for 2014.
2014, a year that announces itself with great allure for BBT. Many new products, that required years of preparation, are now ready for production and they will be available soon, we’re looking forward to it.
BBT will get new opening hours and other modifications will come into force, in order to improve returns. BBT is ready for it. Our slogan ‘service’ will be extended wherever possible.
There is nothing else then to wish you a good health, happiness and joyfulness in your job. A privilege that only humans may experience! Happy 2014! That all your wishes may come true for you personally and in your business….
