ASSA ABLOY scoops Innovation Award
ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, triumphed at the Black Country Chamber of Commerce Awards.
In front of a packed house at Wolverhampton Racecourse, ASSA ABLOY was presented with the Innovation Award for Yale’s keyfree and keyless smart living products.
Lee Philp, Chief Operating Officer at ASSA ABLOY, said:
“The West Midlands has a rich heritage of lock making, so it was an honour to be recognised locally by the Black Country Chamber of Commerce.
“Innovation is the single most important driver for organic growth and the backbone for ASSA ABLOY’s success in the market place. It’s for that reason we’ve more than doubled our investment in research and development, which has led to the creation of products such as Yale’s keyfree and keyless smart living products.”
With 50 billion connected devices expected to be in use by 2020, it is expected that 25% of consumers will purchase a connected security system within five years.
Keyfree is a digital door lock by Yale, which allows you to access and secure your home without the need for a key.
Yale’s Smart Living range takes the hassle out of home security, allowing users to keep an eye on their home whenever and wherever they are.
ASSA ABLOY is the largest global supplier of intelligent lock and security solutions. One in every 10 lock and security installations worldwide uses our products.
Using the latest technologies and tried-and-tested techniques we are constantly developing innovative solutions that improve our customers’ lives through greater security, safety and convenience.
ASSA ABLOY was formed in 1994 through the merger of ASSA in Sweden and Abloy in Finland. Since then ASSA ABLOY has grown from a regional company to an international group with more than 44,000 employees and annual sales close to SEK 57 billion.
