Nassau Industrial Doors Ltd is becoming part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, bringing together two of the UK’s leaders in industrial access. Nassau will join formally with ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems Ltd, with the new entity known as ASSA ABLOY Industrial Door Solutions.

John Burton, Managing Director of the newly merged businesses, said: “Our new name reflects the merger of two leading suppliers in the industrial door market. By combining our joint skills and capabilities we can offer the most comprehensive portfolio of products in the UK and draw on extensive operational excellence delivered by both brands.”

The enhanced product range includes UK-manufactured industrial roller shutters, as well as both ASSA ABLOY and Nassau brands of overhead sectional doors. This is complemented by a proposition for high-speed and specialist application doors and docking products.

“We will support ASSA ABLOY and Nassau products with our 24/7/365 after-sales care, which includes the UK’s largest national network of service technicians, fully trained on the entire product portfolio,” added John. “In addition, we are further enhancing customer service with a dedicated UK spare parts centre, located in Stoke-on-Trent, which will go live in the third quarter of 2022.”

Nassau Industrial Doors was founded in 1970 to supply, install and service high-quality industrial, commercial and retail door systems. Its products are ISO 9001:2015 approved and Nassau is a member of the Door and Hardware Federation, Constructionline, CHAS and SAFEcontractor.

ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems Ltd has been operating in the UK since 1967 under the separate product brands of Crawford and Albany. These brands were brought together in 2011 as a single legal entity rebranded as ASSA ABLOY. Its full range includes directly manufactured sectional doors, high-speed doors, roller shutters, dock levellers, dock shelters, vehicle restraint systems and hinged doors – including fire and security rated steel leaf doors.

The company has built an impressive reputation in the market by providing an innovative and broad product portfolio to deliver cost-effective and reliable solutions for convenient, safe, secure, attractive and sustainable entrances. ASSA ABLOY was formed in 1994 through a merger of ASSA in Sweden and Abloy in Finland. It has grown into an international group with approximately 51,000 employees and operations in over 70 countries.

“We are proud to be extending the ASSA ABLOY family,” said Burton. “This will give our customers even more choice while also benefiting from the added strength that comes from being part of a global entity. The establishment of our new spare parts centre is a demonstration of that strength and ASSA ABLOY’s commitment to the UK market.”
