Autoliv Inc is a Delaware corporation. It was created from the merger of Autoliv AB 'AAB' and the automotive safety products business of Morton International, Inc., in 1997. The Company functions as a holding corporation and owns two principal subsidiaries, AAB and Autoliv ASP, Inc. 'ASP'. AAB and ASP are developers, manufacturers and suppliers to the automotive industry of automotive safety systems. It has production facilities in 29 countries and its customers include the world's largest car manufacturers. Autoliv AB is a developer, manufacturer and supplier to the automotive industry of car occupant restraint systems. Autoliv ASP, Inc. is a producer of airbag modules and inflators. ASP designs, develops and manufactures airbag inflators, modules and airbag cushions, seatbelts and steering wheels. ASP sells inflators and modules for use in driver, passenger, side-impact and knee bolster airbag systems for worldwide automotive markets. The component factories manufacture inflators, initiators, textile cushions, webbing materials, electronics, pressed steel parts, springs and overmoulded steel parts used in seat belt and airbag assembly, seat subsystems, and steering wheels. The assembly factories source components from a number of parties, including Autoliv's own component factories, and assemble complete restraint systems for just-in-time delivery to customers. Autoliv's 'just-in-time' delivery systems have been designed to accommodate the specific requirements of each customer for low levels of inventory and rapid stock delivery service. Just-in-time deliveries require final assembly or at least distribution centers in geographic areas close to customers to facilitate rapid delivery. The Company's comprehensive Autoliv Product Development System process includes several key check points during the development of new products that are designed to ensure that new products are well-built and have no hidden weaknesses. The Autoliv Production System is at the core of its manufacturing philosophy. APS integrates essential quality elements, such as mistake proofing, statistical process control and operator involvement, into the manufacturing processes. The company's business uses a range of raw materials and components in the manufacture of its products, nearly all of which are generally available from a number of qualified suppliers. Its customers are automobile manufacturers whose production volumes are dependent upon general economic conditions and the level of consumer spending. The Company compete with a number of other manufacturers that produce and sell similar products. Among other factors, its products compete on the basis of price, product quality, manufacturing and distribution capability, product design, product delivery and product service. The Company is subject to the requirements of environmental, occupational health and safety and other governmental regulations in the United States and other countries.
