Leading security brands Chubb Locks Custodial Services (CLCS), Intelligent Locking Systems (ILS) and Pickersgill-Kaye have formed the High Security and Safety Group, a new division of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK and Ireland.
As strong heritage brands in the high-security and rail industries, CLCS, ILS and Pickersgill-Kaye each offer their own specialisms and sector expertise. By bringing these well-known brands together under one new group, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK and Ireland will provide a stronger, more comprehensive offer to different sectors.
Each brand enjoys its own areas of expertise, with CLCS a prominent supplier of high-security locks to custodial, secure healthcare, Government and secure education environments. ILS is a leading manufacturer of high-security locks for safes and vaults, providing solutions to the banking, construction, leisure and jewellery sector. Pickersgill-Kaye is a specialist in the design and manufacture of highly robust, specialist door locks for the architectural and railway industries.
The CLCS, ILS and Pickersgill-Kaye divisions will continue as distinct brands within the High Security and Safety Group, which will sit alongside ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK and Ireland’s other specialist business units. These include the Door Group, the Door Hardware and Access Control Group and the Project Specification Group.
Simon Teagle, managing director of the High Security and Safety Group, said: “The creation of the new High Security and Safety Group will help signpost our specialist high-security, safety and rail brands to the market, giving security professionals one point of contact and access to a wider range of products, as well as a more tailored solution. Using the strength of the brands, the quality of the products and their experience in these areas, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK and Ireland now has a dedicated Group covering the specific needs of high-security and safety customers.”
