Dorel Juvenile Group Issues Statement Regarding IIHS 2010 Booster Seat ReportCOLUMBUS, IN, September 8, 2010 – Dorel Juvenile Group has a history of offering the best, most innovative products while also offering value for parents and caregivers. Under our Cosco, Safety 1st, Eddie Bauer and Maxi-Cosi brands, the IIHS rated 5 of our seats as a “Best Bet” or “Good Bet.” The high ranking of our seats by the IIHS, confirms our position, that through standards and innovation we deliver products with the highest quality and reliability.
At DJG we are constantly updating and investing for the future and have built a one of a kind, state of the art facility, the Dorel Technical Center for Child Safety. The Technical Center is fostering innovation and continues to fuel Dorel’s leadership in the design, development and crash worthiness of our car seats. In fact, the first product developed using the processes in the Tech Center, the Rümi™ Air harnessed booster, has received a Best Buy rating and will be included on the IIHS’s website posting of its booster report.
Customer expectations of car seat quality, reliability, safety, and utility are at an all time high. While all Dorel car seats meet or exceed federal safety standards set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ), we evaluate and continue to evolve current products to enhance their performance with new technologies and designs that reflects our leadership in child passenger safety. As the largest manufacturer of car seats in the world, our mission at Dorel is to conceive and create the most innovative car seats that will provide the most advanced protection and reliability for children.
