China’s Global Auto Ambitions Get a Boost as Takata Picks Bidder
A year ago, Ningbo Joyson Electronic Corp. would have been an unlikely name on a shortlist of candidates to rescue Takata Corp., the Japanese air-bag maker that’s behind the biggest safety recall in automotive history. Joyson-owned Key Safety Systems Inc. has emerged as the leading bidder for Takata Corp.
