China’s Ningbo Joyson Electronic Corp., hours after closing its acquisition of a Michigan-based air-bag maker, may now be interested in purchasing Takata Corp., The Wall Street Journal reports. Joyson, a major automotive-parts maker with holdings around the world, is looking at Takata to grow its active and passive safety-components business.
