Kolon to supply airbag fabric to Autoliv


Kolon Industries has signed a three-year contract worth US$38m with airbag supplier Autoliv to provide one-piece woven polyester side curtains for Ford.

Autoliv will produce modules using Kolon’s airbag cushions and supply them to Ford for its popular models, such as the Mondeo, Lincoln, Fusion and Edge. The company is reported to have a 35% share of the global airbag module market.

The deal paves the way for Kolon to resume exports to the US two years after it halted shipments to the country owing to a legal dispute with DuPont.
