Elias Wexler, long-time president of Zero International, was honored at a dinner hosted by Zero’s new corporate parent Allegion plc, a global security products and solutions provider.

The special event, celebrating Zero’s joining the Allegion family, highlighted Wexler’s accomplishments as he was named “Zero International President Emeritus.” 

Anshu Mehrotra, Allegion vice president and general manager of the Americas mechanical business, was among those who recognized Wexler for his contributions to Zero. Wexler, who joined Zero in the late 1970s as its first engineer managing product development, became Zero’s president in 1985.

“Thanks to Elias’ unique stature in the door and hardware industry, Zero has an amazing success story,” Mehrotra said. “His leadership guided Zero’s expansion from traditional weather stripping into new product lines, as well as global markets.”
