Today the Burton Car Company and 2CV Méhari Club Cassis announced an intensive partnership. The two founders of Burton Car Company, Iwan and Dimitri Göbel, have sold the majority of their shares to the French group, but remain closely involved with the Zutphen-based company as shareholders and actively working on future creative and technical projects.
Though they feel that the joining of forces by 2CV Mehari Club Cassis and Burton Car Company creates a strong organization with a unique product range for the iconic 2CV and Méhari, both organizations will remain independent within the newly formed alliance. Burton Car Company will still remain the same Dutch company as it is right now, based in Zutphen, and with the current staff.
They say the partnership will ensure that both are better equipped to meet the challenges in today’s global market, such as inflation, high prices for raw material, labour shortages and uncertain deliveries.
