History

Originally, Autoliv was a car and tractor repair shop established by Lennart Lindblad. In 1956, three years after its inception, the company launched seatbelts. It purchased its first company in 1959 and also went through acquisitions by other companies. Near the end of the 1900s, the company participated in a number of joint ventures established in the U.S., Japan, China, India, and other countries. Finally Autoliv as it is known today was formed during a 1997 merger between Autoliv AB and Morton ASP. Since then the company has continued to expand and introduce new products.
