High Security & Safety Group Announcement Chubb Locks Custodial Services (CLCS), Intelligent Locking Systems (ILS) and Pickersgill Kaye (PK) will form the new High Security & Safety Group, becoming part of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland. We’re pleased to announce the introduction of the new High Security & Safety Group, which will sit alongside the other specialist business units of Door Group, Door Hardware & Access Control Group and Project Specification Group, as part of the newly introduced ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland (formerly ASSA ABLOY UK). CLCS, ILS and PK all have a strong heritage in the high security and rail industries, each with their own specialisms and sector expertise. Bringing these well-known brands together under one Group strengthens our offering in their respective sectors and allows us to provide a more comprehensive offering to our customers. The CLCS, ILS and PK businesses will retain their identities and brand presence but benefit from the synergies and customer base they share. Simon Teagle, Managing Director, High Security & Safety Group, said: “The creation of this Group helps signpost our customers to our specialist high security, safety and rail brands, giving them one point of contact and access to a wider range of products, as well as a more tailored solution. “The new Group will provide a complete range of solutions and leading products for the custodial, secure healthcare, government and transport sectors. Utilising the strength of the brands, the quality of the products and their experience in these areas, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland now has a dedicated Group covering the specific needs of high security and safety customers. The addition of the High Security and Safety Group not only simplifies our positioning for our customers but it also strengthens the breadth and depth of our offering.
