About us

Savona has been active on the carwash market since 1968. After all these years, innovation is still the highest priority. A lot has changed since the first Savona Self Carwash was developed in the 1960s. Not only have cars become more aerodynamic, equipment development has also soared.

INNOVATION
Savona considers innovation a core responsibility. It is essential to differentiate oneself in the market, and Savona certainly stands out.
As a result of being highly specialised, Savona is a contract supplier to several chain companies as well as highly distinguished oil companies.SPECIALISATION
Savona specialised in the Self Carwash segment from the beginning. As a completely independent Dutch company, Savona develops and produces all its own systems! More than10 years ago, Savona became a certified company in compliance with SCC** requirements (Safety, Health and Environment Checklist Contractors). This enables Savona to manage entire TURN-KEY projects. Savona was the first company in the carwash business to receive this certification.

THE 1960s

Savona specialised in the Self Carwash segment from the beginning. The first Self Service carwash installation was developed in the mid 1960s. As a completely independent Dutch company, Savona develops and produces all its own systems.

THE 1980s
Self Carwash has developed rapidly since the end of the 1980s. The increase in environmental consciousness in national and international government policies has obviously favoured this line of business. For example, in some federal states in Germany one is no longer allowed to wash a car on the street.

THE 1990s

In the last few years, interest groups have been founded for wash station operators that provide professional support to their members. The best-known groups are Bovag (Union of Garage Owners) and Division CARWASH and Beta (Carwash Truckwash and Petrol compagnies).
In 1996, the company was handed over from father to son. Jules van den Dungen, founder of Savona, handed over the entire company to his son, Vincent van den Dungen.
