Autoliv: Fire destroys Tunisian steering wheel plant

A fire has completely destroyed automotive supplier Autoliv AB's (Stockholm / Sweden; www.autoliv.com) steering wheel production plant in El Nadhour / Tunisia. The fire, caused by welding works, broke out during the Christmas holidays, decimating crucial production capacity for the European market.


Most moulds could be saved and meanwhile have been brought to Poitiers / France, Autoliv's largest European production site. It is from this base that the company now is trying to upkeep its just-in-time delivery flow of parts.
