Named after founder Allen Breed, the Florida-based company was once the third-largest occupant safety equipment supplier in the world. The company specialized in air bags, seat belts, steering wheels, and crash-sensing electronics. Allen's wife, Johnnie Breed, served as Chairman and CEO.

In September 2003, Breed Technologies, Inc. announced that it changed its name to Key Safety Systems, Inc. and completed the relocation of its worldwide headquarters to Sterling Heights, Michigan. The new name and change of address officially closed the integration of Breed by the Carlyle Management Group and aligned Key Safety Systems, Inc. with its affiliate, Key Plastics, L.L.C. in the Detroit area under the unified Key Automotive Group brand.
