Maxi-Cosi celebrates 30 years

Maxi-Cosi is marking its 30th year in business as one of the leading innovators in child car seat safety with the launch of the first infant carrier to meet the international i-Size (R129) safety standard.

In 1984, Maxi-Cosi became one of the first manufacturers to introduce an infant car seat to the European market.

Since then, Maxi-Cosi has been at the forefront of car seat safety and innovation, notably: creating the first stroller-car seat hybrid; being the first to launch the concept of the 3-in-1 car seat travel system; creating IsoFix base solutions across all age ranges; and developing pioneering lights-and-sound LED display to warn parents of unsafe installation.

Maxi-Cosi has also worked with UK hip dysplasia charity STEPS to launch the Opal HD, a car seat specially designed to give children with hip dysplasia more support, flexibility and comfort.

Significantly, in 2013, Maxi-Cosi became the first to introduce an i-Size car seat to the UK market - the 2wayPearl with 2wayFix Base. This groundbreaking car seat and the industry-leading Pebble infant carrier with 2wayFix Base were both awarded Which? Best Buys in 2014.

The first infant carrier to meet i-Size regulation, Maxi-Cosi Pebble Plus - Maxi-Cosi's latest innovation - offers newborns a better fit and lying position with its innovative baby hugg inlay. Industry-first new high-tech impact-absorbing material in the top side wings of the seat provide comfort and optimum safety in the event of an accident.

Andrew Ratcliffe, MD of Maxi-Cosi UK, said: "Maxi-Cosi is extremely proud of its reputation, built up over the past 30 years, as a leading innovator in car seat safety.

"It is for this reason that we worked so hard to support the development of i-Size legislation and it has been very rewarding to be the first to bring an i-Size compliant car seat and, now, an i-Size compliant infant carrier to the market.

"Developing and introducing the Pebble Plus is testament to the commitment to innovation and safety that Maxi-Cosi has become renowned for over three decades. Long may that continue."
