The Britax brand is synonymous with safety, quality and product integrity and sets the standard for product research, testing and development. Britax has pioneered numerous technical advances. These include the development of the ISOFIX feature for fitting child car safety seats and the introduction of side impact protection technology.
Britax has leading brands in each of its principal markets including Europe (Britax and Britax Römer), the US (Britax) and Australia (Safe-n-Sound, Steelcraft).
The company was acquired by Nordic Capital Fund VII in 2011. The ambition is to drive geographical expansion and to capitalise on emerging market growth, predominantly in China and Latin America.
In April 2018, Nordic Capital’s 2008 vintage fund, Fund VII completed the transfer of its remaining nine unlisted portfolio companies including Britax, to a continuation vehicle, Nordic Capital CV1 or "CV1". Fund VII’s original term expired in December 2017 and by this transaction, Nordic Capital took the opportunity to maximise the value creation potential of these nine companies, providing them with active support and fresh capital over an additional five-year holding period under continued Nordic Capital management.
