They don't :(

The plug was pulled on Servis a couple of years ago unfortunately.

I don't think they went bankrupt but their owners, one of the dreaded Merloni companies, just stopped trading with the Servis name. That's as i understand it, could be slightly different.

A shame as they were once a respectable British name & even their final machines from a couple of years ago have lasted longer than some of the tat on sale recently, with some very good program choices too.

UK-based

I was just referring to the situation as i know it to be in the UK.

Sadly the Servis on that link is just another example of slapping a different brand name onto one generic machine (im sure i've seen an idential 'Bush' or 'Swan' branded machine over here).

It'd probably be better if they just left the name dead rather than resurecting it using questionable products from other companies :(

I thought that looked the case. That's a shame as i presume theyre not very well built?

I remember servis and the build quality was poor especially their machines from around late 1990 and naughties, proper brands like zanussi and bosch are better. The Bush machines and Hair are a false economy along with Beko which I have heard is poor. Best to stay clear not worth it.

wow...

It seems even Servis is now under the wing of Vestel...

Another example of cheaply made machinery with a branded logo slapped onto it. Zanussi, Electrolux, now Servis I wonder what brand will be next...
