The Assa Abloy Group, based in Sweden, is the largest lock manufacturer in the world judged by sales volume and has many successful divisions. The latest of these is UK Specification, which is “dedicated to creating design-led architectural ironmongery and doorset specifications that meet the stylish product requirements of the 21st century’s discerning specifier”.
Assa Abloy was established in 1994 when security company ASSA AB joined with Finnish lock-makers Abloy Oy. Later that same year, the company became listed on the Stockholm stock exchange and was a massive success: Assa Abloy have since made more than 150 acquisitions including Union, Chubb and world-famous Yale.
UK Specification is the latest in a long line of innovations for Assa Abloy, who now create a vast array of mechanical and electrical locks, automatic doors and access control systems. The company division will partner with architects and property developers to offer ‘door-opening’ design solutions using high-quality, expertly-engineered architectural ironmongery.
David Wigglesworth, the MD of UK Specification, said, “We will bring our extensive expertise from being part of ASSA ABLOY, as the global leader in door opening solutions, to provide added value and knowledge”. He also mentioned that the “returning confidence” to the marketplace would bring many new growth opportunities and said that the launch of UK Specification had been “carefully timed” to support these.
