That they are now taking over Insignia, which has been a skilled partner with a long and solid history, is an important strengthening and continuation of Jaguar’s and Land Rover’s presence in Oslo. Our knowledge about and experience of Bilia makes us confident that they are the right future partners for our brands Jaguar and Land Rover.

Bilia contacted us at a favorable time and Insignia’s owner and management see this as a right and important step in the company’s continued development. Bilia has for the past ten years shown that they can further develop good business at the same time as the individual company’s culture and values are passed on.
