Maxi-Cosi, was a family owed import business that became a manufacturer. In 1984 the company started manufacturing the first of a new type of seat known as the’ infant carrier’. This was a rear facing seat, to be used on the front passenger seat, in those days there was no such thing as airbags! This product offered many advantages to parents as soon became a ‘must have’ brand for many mothers worldwide. From these early beginning Maxi –Cosi developed a small range of quality forward facing seats. In 1994 the company was acquired by Dorel who continue to maintain and develop the brand.
