The Austrian distribution companies for Renault and Nissan will merge into one company in the course of the next couple of months, Austria Today reported, citing Renault-Austria general director Alain Schoneborn.

Renault and Nissan will continue to be marketed as two separate car brands but ‘back office’ functions such as finance, personnel and logistics will be merged.

The headquarters of the new operation will be Renault’s facility in Vienna-Favoriten.
