In 1994, the ASSA ABLOY Group of companies began forming when Assa AB broke away from its partner company, Securitas AB. It was soon after this happened that Abloy Oy, a Finnish security lock company, was acquired by Assa AB.
Over time, the ASSA ABLOY Group which is the parent company of Assa has managed to rise to the pinnacle of the lock manufacturing industry.
