The access control product firm LOCKEN reports a joint venture, with ISEO, an Italian family-run business, established in 1969, that designs and makes intelligent access management systems. LOCKEN says it aims to strengthen its position in cable-free access control and the smart digital key market, while offering complementary technologies.
Roland de la Chapelle, LOCKEN’s CEO, says: “After 14 years of continuous development, and materialised by the 150,000 sites equipped with our solution, we wanted to leverage our expertise into new industries and technologies. Joining forces with ISEO represents an important lever for growth, providing LOCKEN with an expanded path for success. For example it will enable us to offer a wider breadth of products, meet additional certifications for certain niche markets and access new customers also building on ISEO Group’s strong international presence. These are all key factors instrumental for our future growth.”
Now looking at all cable free access control projects within the Group, LOCKEN says it’s looking to contribute to the expansion of the group’s electronics arm. This has already been demonstrated by the integration of new communication technologies, such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Bluetooth, which open up the possibility of new services in the access control field.
