Kaba and German competitor Dorma announced merger on 30 April 2015
The acquisition was finalised on 1 September 2015 and Kaba Holding AG became dorma+kaba Holding AG. In early 2016 senior management took the decision to spin off its Safes + Vaults division.
The now dorma+kaba Group has its roots in the safe manufacturer, founded in 1862 by Franz Bauer.
Kaba AG Safes + Vaults incorporated into WALDIS Tresore AG as of 1 July 2016
We are delighted to inform you that WALDIS Tresore AG will wholly acquire this business unit from 1 July 2016 and integrate it into the company. This move will allow jobs to be retained and safeguarded in the Swiss labour market. WALDIS Tresore AG will work with former Kaba AG employees and production facilities to continue manufacturing and marketing all products to the accustomed level of quality.
The acquisition also ensures that superior products such as safes, strongrooms, armoured doors and safety deposit boxes certified to European standards will be developed and manufactured in Switzerland in the future as well.
The close collaboration in the field of electronic locks and services with dorma+kaba shows that both companies go to the ends of the earth to ensure their customers’ needs are comprehensively supported.
All employees at the ‘new’ WALDIS Tresore AG are looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.
It goes without saying that we will soon be featuring all new products and services on our website and also unveiling new developments on an ongoing basis.
