The SAG/Autonet Group has acquired a majority stake in Wagen International d.o.o (Wint), which operates in Serbia. The founder as well as the management of Wint will remain active in their existing functions.


The SAG/Autonet Group participates with a majority in the market leader Wagen international d.o.o (Wint), which is active in Serbia. The brand name is a synonym for quality and reliability. Around 300 Wint employees from 15 branches supply the Serbian garage market with spare parts from first-class suppliers.
