  • 22-Oct-2012 08:37 EDT

Autoliv said Oct. 19 that it will expand its technical center for active safety and vehicle restraint development in Shanghai, China. The expansion will enable the company to increase its crash testing, engineering of passive and active safety systems, and global core airbag development in China. Currently, 6% of Autoliv’s 7200 employees in China work in engineering and product development, which includes vehicle crash testing. These 430 employees represent 10% of Autoliv’s global head count in research, development, and engineering. The current tech center will grow to 20,500 m2 (220,600 ft2) in the expansion. The company is adding an additional state-of-the-art crash simulation test track and office space for 130 more technical experts.
