Setting the standard for automotive passive safety testing worldwide

Cellbond is an award-winning global business which specialises in the design, development and manufacture of equipment for vehicle crash testing worldwide.  Vehicle crash tests allow manufacturers to measure ATD injuries and to validate passive safety features including restraint solutions and car body structures against legislative requirements.  Cellbond has been at the forefront of the design, development and manufacture of passive safety testing products and equipment for over 30 years. During that time, Cellbond has built a strong reputation for supplying consistently high-quality products with excellent repeatability rates which enable our customers to measure the protective performance of a vehicle when carrying human occupants.
