Kinetron acquired by ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions

ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEIA has announced its acquisition of Kinetron, a motion-based energy harvesting system for self-powered products, as part of its efforts to accelerate growth in digital access solutions.

Kinetron was established in 1984, with its main office located in Tilburg, Netherlands.

Neil Vann, EVP & Head of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEIA said: “Kinetron is a strategic technological addition to the ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEIA division and will reinforce our offering in energy harvesting locking solutions that are energy efficient, maintenance free and environmentally friendly.

“It will provide complementary growth opportunities for our digital access solutions business segment, where we drive innovation to deliver profitable sustainable growth.”

The manufacturer recently spoke to IFSEC Insider about reducing its carbon emissions and provided tips for other businesses after a survey found small businesses have struggled with how to implement sustainability into their everyday business operations.

David Moser, SVP & Head of Digital Access Solutions EMEIA added: “Kinetron brings 35 years of experience in developing and manufacturing motion-based energy harvesting systems that enable self-powered intelligent products and facilitate the growth of electronic and IoT solutions in a sustainable way.

“Their mission of ‘Energy Harvesting Excellence’ comes together nicely with our vision for Digital Access Solutions (DAS) to create an access control ecosystem, that connects all our ASSA ABLOY hardware through one interface in a sustainable way, so we can continue to improve people’s lives even further.”
