By Andrew Baldacchino

IGC DOREL is one of Australia’s leading suppliers of Nursery and Child Safety products in Australia. Their brands have been built on innovation and design, and have been providing trusted solutions for Australian families for more than three decades.

One of IGC Dorel’s product portfolios specialises on Car Seats and this year at the inaugural Australian Mother & Baby Awards, IGC received an award in the “Car Seat of the Year” category.

The award winning car seat is the “MAXI-COSI Complete Air Forward-Facing Car Seat”.

The APV Tech Centre supports IGC award winning Child Seat development

All of the R&D testing was conducted here at the APV Tech Centre, utilising our NATA (ISO17025) accredited test laboratory, specialised test facility and experienced staff. As a result, IGC were able to work through the design and development of their product and deliver the MAXI-COSI that meets the requirements of the Australian Standard AS/1754 for Child Restraint Systems.

The team here at the Tech Centre extends our sincerest congratulations to IGC Dorel on this award and continued success in the future!
