Autoliv’s China Business Most Profitable, Dagens Industri Says

Autoliv Inc. (ALIV)’s factories in China are the company’s most profitable, with an operating margin “well above” a global average of about 11 percent, Dagens Industri said, citing Jan Carlson, chief executive officer of the auto-parts maker.

The Chinese operations are the most efficient due to near- full capacity utilization as well as low costs, Carlson said in an interview, according to the Swedish newspaper.
