Saab Company Description:
The name SAAB is actually an acronym. It comes from "Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget" which means "Swedish Aircraft Company." Saab can be traced back to its origin of Scandinavia. The original Svenska Aeroplan Aktie(B)olaget was established in 1937 with the express purpose of building aircraft for the Swedish Air Force. While Saab is in fact an acronym, and, as with many other manufacturers, the word "SAAB" appears in all-capitals within the corporate emblem and in on-vehicle badging, the current correct capitalization of Saab when in print is "Saab," and not "SAAB." After all, once you've built jets, you don't build just another vehicle!
