ASSA ABLOY: Acquisition of SECURITRON MAGNALOCK completed

26 Oct 1998

 
Securitron Magnalock Corporation is one of the leading manufacturers of magnetic locks and electromechanical exit devices in the US.
 
Securitron is an important addition to the group, as it will add a significant group of electromechanical products as well as open new distribution channels for these products in general. The electromechanical lock market is the fastest growing segment of the overall lock market as these products are important components in any electronic security system. The magnetic lock market is most developed in the US, but with new innovative products and the increased use of integrated security systems and electronic access control systems, these products will gradually become more important also in Europe.
 
Securitron Magnalock will be consolidated from 22 October 1998.
