ASSA ABLOY acquired Alarm Controls Corporation, a Deer Park, N.Y.-based access control accessories manufacturer.

Founded in 1971, Alarm Controls joins ASSA ABLOY Group brands Securitron and HES to serve and provide greater penetration into the access control market.

“We are very pleased with the acquisition of Alarm Controls by ASSA ABLOY and know this will strengthen our relationships in the access control market,” said Scott Baker, president of ASSA ABLOY Electro-Mechanical Specialties and OEM Group.

Alarm Controls’ suite of products, including door control consoles, push plates, keypads, zone annunciators and magnetic locks, will strengthen ASSA ABLOY’s existing access control portfolio, the company said.

“Alarm Controls is a very exciting addition to the ASSA ABLOY Americas division. This acquisition will allow us to further enhance our ability to serve our customers in this very important market,” says Thanasis Molokotos, ASSA ABLOY vice president and head of its Americas Division.
