Yale Door and Window Solutions is ready to commission a new £800k machine to increase production capacity of its high security Lockmaster multipoint locks.

Following the recent formation of Yale Door and Window Solutions, this investment in new machinery demonstrates the commitment to build products in house, bringing greater flexibility and job creation to the ASSA ABLOY UK factory in Portobello works, Willenhall.

The new ‘Dimenco Allibert’ automatic press line will significantly increase in house manufacturing capacity of one piece keeps for the prestigious Lockmaster brand of multipoint door locks, benefiting fabricators and installers across the UK.

Kevin Hill, Managing Director for Yale Door and Window Solutions: “As a marketing leading supplier to the sector, Yale Door and Window Solutions has brought together the world’s favourite Yale, Lockmaster and Millenco brands to create the UK’s largest supplier of multipoint locks.

“True to our objectives is the significant investment in our UK factory facilities, to take responsibility for insourcing and to bring production back in house.  This way, we can take greater control of servicing our fabricator and installer customers and delivering products exactly as and when required, to make sure they stay ahead of competition in a continuingly difficult economic climate.
