Lexington, KY - For the first time in North America since the announcement of the merger between Dorma group and Kaba group, both companies will exhibit as one united enterprise at the ISC West show in Las Vegas. The International Security Conference & Exposition, the world's largest security industry gathering, is a vital show for the company.
“dorma+kaba represents the emergence of a new industry leader,” says Steve Dentinger, lead North America EAD (Electronic Access & Data) for dorma+kaba Access Solutions Americas. “This merger allows us to offer our customers a wider range of products and services from a single source.”
The complementary product offerings between the two companies provide significant synergy. Kaba’s Keyscan integrated access control line and Dorma’s RCI electric strikes and power supplies are natural fits, especially for the integration market. Both lines will feature new products in booth 25089, while the company’s second booth, 7109, will serve as a presentation theatre for industry topic discussions and Fitness Zone relaxation station with complimentary massages.
“This show represents an enormous opportunity for our new company to launch its broad-reaching capabilities,” notes Laura Reid, lead marketing for dorma+kaba Access Solutions Americas. “Since the merger announcement in September, we have worked aggressively with our integration team to put a new corporate structure in place. Up to now, these internal efforts have not been visible to our customers and channel partners, but all that changes with our booths at this show. The #WeFit says it all: dorma+kaba has integrated solutions that fit our markets’ needs.”
