Since its formation in 1994, ASSA ABLOY has grown from a regional company into an international group with around 47,000 employees, sales of about SEK 71 billion and own operations in over 70 countries.
The Group’s strength is the variety of traditional and new products that can be combined to create a large number of different door environments. ASSA ABLOY has products for different climates, different types of buildings and differing security and safety requirements. By combining hundreds of thousands of components to meet the needs of consumers, architects and installers, the Group creates products with the right quality, design and price, which are ideal for both new buildings and renovations.
ASSA ABLOY is represented on both mature and emerging markets worldwide, with leading positions in much of Europe, North America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
ASSA ABLOY is divided into three regional and two global divisions. The regional divisions, Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific, manufacture and sell mechanical and electromechanical locks, digital door locks, cylinders and security doors adapted to the local market’s standards and security requirements. The global divisions, Global Technologies and Entrance Systems, manufacture and sell electronic access control, identification products and entrance automation on the global market.
The Asia Pacific division manufactures and sells mechanical and electromechanical locks, digital door locks, high-security doors and hardware.
China accounts for 50 percent of sales, South Korea and the rest of Asia for 20 percent, Australia and New Zealand for 20 percent, and exports to the rest of the world for 10 percent. The Asian countries are emerging markets without established security standards. New construction accounts for around three-quarters of sales.
In China, the same types of lock, handle and hardware are often used in both homes and workplaces. The production units in China also supply ASSA ABLOY’s other divisions. Australia and New Zealand are mature markets with established lock standards. Renovations and upgrades account for the majority of sales.
In Asia, the division’s largest brands are the Chinese brands Baodean,Guli, Pan Pan, Shenfei Liyi, Doormax, Beijing Tianming, Golking, Sahne and Longdian, the South Korean brands Gateman, Angel and King and the global brand Yale. In Australia and New Zealand, the largest brands are Lockwood and Interlock.
Asia Pacific's share of Group sales is 14 percent (2012). The division has 15,200 employees and the divisional head office is located in Hong Kong.
