The ASSA ABLOY Group is a Swedish company. The group is the world's leading manufacturer and supplier of locks. ASSA ABLOY was formed in 1994 when ASSA AB was detached from Swedish security firm Securitas AB. Shortly thereafter the Finnish high-security lock manufacturer Abloy Oy (a subsidiary of the Finnish company Wärtsilä) was acquired. The company was introduced to the Stockholm stock exchange later the same year. ASSA ABLOY now owns Yale lock, Sargent and the high-security lock firms of Medeco in the U.S., Mul-T-Lock in Israel and Fichet in FranceIt is controlled by Gustaf Douglas through his company Latour.
