The Chamberlain Group Inc., Elmhurst, Ill., has acquired the assets associated with the design and manufacture of gate operators of Edko Inc., Sugar Grove, Ill. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Edko has been privately owned and operated for more than 50 years. The company manufactures and distributes commercial and residential gate operators and related gate and access control products. Edko’s former owners will continue to distribute and sell gate operators and other products under the name, Pro Access Systems.
Under this agreement, Edko’s locations that do business under the name of Pro Access Systems will continue to function as independent companies, separate from Chamberlain. Pro Access will continue to manufacture gate operators during a transition period and will support its customer base with spare or replacement parts for a seamless transition. Pro Access will increase their portfolio of Chamberlain products in addition to the other products they sell and distribute.
Pro Access was acquired by Edko in 2003. Operational locations will remain in Atlanta, Tampa, Denver and Chicago with a continued focus on distribution and customer support. In addition to the Chamberlain products now offered, Pro Access will continue to manufacture and distribute security gates, hardware, and other manufacturers’ products.
