Happy Birthday BBT! 30 years and counting….

Happy Birthday BBT!

Exactly 30 years ago, on february 06 in the year 1987 BBT opened for the very first times its doors to the public to sell Volkswagen parts to keep all our beloved ones on the road, a vision we didn’t change and only promoted stronger during the last 30 years.

We’re here to stay and do what we like to do, provide You the parts to keep your old Volkswagens on the road…  with more force as ever!

Happy birthday to BBT, as well as congratulations to all of You, our customers, suppliers, friends and sympathisers to give us the opportunity to celebrate this remarkable birthday!

Just below a couple of pictures from the “Garden shed” where it all started, from the pig farm where we took the first expansion, the first industrial building and the building we currently operate from…. a time line so to say…..  thanks to you, all of You…. and thanks again!

Up to the next 30 years!

Last friday I was invited to Ile de Reunion, a magical tropical island from France. Our distributor for Reunion, Coleur Chrome from Mickael and his team prepared a small road trip and was brave enough to give me a Vw to participate!
