Spanish toolmaker Matrici says it will travel to Sweden next week to discuss outstanding debts owed by Saab of EUR2m (US$2.8m).

Reports earlier circulated the stamping and body-in-white parts tooler was looking to secure proceedings to start bankruptcy proceedings, but Matrici denies this is the case.

“We have not started bankruptcy proceedings but we have asked for payment – the amount is around EUR2m.” Matrici general manager Mikel Irarajorri told just-auto.

“We have not started the possibility of bankruptcy. We will travel to Sweden next week, to Trollhattan.”

Saab has been the subject of numerous supplier difficulties as it battles to resume production later this month, while its four main unions met CEO Victor Muller yesterday (10 August) to discuss the situation.
