President of the Japanese Takata Corporation Stephen Stocker has resigned for personal reasons, said the press service of the company. This is also due to the fact that companies need to actively respond to the situation with the withdrawal of the airbag, and this may contribute to the appointment as head of the corporation Sigehisa Takada, the grandson of its founder.
The scandal surrounding the airbag broke earlier this year. Defect device is squib, because theft is revealed too much pressure. As a result of the internal components is broken, and fly in the cabin as fragments. We already know about these five fatal cases, and dozens of cases ended passenger injuries. Defect prone cars assembled in the early 2000s. For several years various brands were recalled more than 24 million vehicles worldwide. Particularly aggressive revocable action takes place in the United States.
Swiss Stefan Stocker became the first foreign president of Takata, which came from the German company Bosch. Racks, however, does not leave the corporation permanently – it remains as a member of the board of directors. At the head of a Japanese supplier of automotive safety systems will reappear Sigehisa Takada. Both top manager will receive pay cuts.
