Trimec launches UK operation Trimec, the innovative electromechanical locking solutions provider, has announced its decision to establish distribution to the UK market alongside fellow ASSA ABLOY Group companies in Wolverhampton. The Australian manufacturer, with distribution partners in many countries across the globe, has decided to distribute the Trimec brand to its UK customers from ASSA ABLOY’s headquarters. The ASSA ABLOY infrastructure will provide superior levels of customer service that its customer base demands. It will also provide opportunities to enhance its product offering and introduce new products to the market. Trimec specialises in electric strikes but also boasts an impressive range of patented electromechanical technologies including drop bolts and V locks. Now, with its own UK sales, distribution, and service infrastructures, there is a solid platform to introduce additions to the product range into the market. David Wigglesworth, Managing Director of Adams Rite in the UK, commented: “Because Trimec is part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, it shares the benefits that all Group companies enjoy. Distributing direct to UK customers makes perfect sense as we have much greater resources and a larger, stronger infrastructure than any existing distribution channels can offer. “Our customers already know and trust Trimec products. They choose us because the build quality is second to none and they can be safe in the knowledge that Trimec products are tested to very high standards – a testament to the superior quality, reliability and lifecycle cost compared to similar, cheaper models. “By distributing direct to the UK market, it will be easier for us to introduce even more new products and we’ll be able to offer a much greater customer experience.” Michael Soderberg, Business Manager of ASSA ABLOY Australia, commented: "By teaming up with our sister company in the UK, new and existing Trimec customers will experience the benefits of ASSA ABLOY's excellent customer service capability, its expertise and resources across all Group brands in the UK. Together we will take Trimec to the next level in the UK". Past and present Trimec customers will soon receive a welcome pack along with other useful information such as a product code converter.
