AmSafe, Inc., the leading provider of highly engineered restraint systems, announced that the AmSafe Bridport Ltd. unit has completed the purchase of certain intellectual property and other assets of Hoffmann Air Cargo Equipment (Hoffmann ACE), a privately-held company specializing in the manufacture of ULD pallet nets.
