One-Billionth Part Produced at Autoliv Facility

Press Release

September 16, 2013

Tremonton — Autoliv Inc. a manufacturer of automotive safety systems, recently produced its one billionth airbag initiator at its Tremonton facility. The company held a ceremony attended by employees and local and state government officials.

An initiator is the device that converts a signal from a vehicle’s electronic control unit into a pyrotechnic charge, which then starts the chain of events in the deployment of an airbag or seatbelt pretensioner.

“Customers and families depend on the initiators made in Utah to save lives and prevent fatal injuries,” said Dan Garceau, vice president of airbag operations at Autoliv Americas.
One billion initiators have rolled off the line at the Tremonton Initiator facility since production began in 1993. The company also celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. The Tremonton plant has been Autoliv’s primary airbag initiator-producing facility since 2005 and builds an average of nearly 2.7 million initiators per week. The facility underwent expansions in 2000 and 2013 to meet global market demand for increased safety products in vehicles.

Tremonton’s 400 employees also manufacture micro gas generators (MGG), which are used as a pre-tensioning device for seat belts in the event of an accident.

Autoliv also operates in Brigham City, Ogden and Promontory.
