Janus International Group LLC, a manufacturer of self-storage roll-up doors and building components, has signed a joint marketing and support agreement with PTI Security Systems, a provider of access-control and security products, to integrate and promote self-storage door-locking solutions on an international level. Under the agreement, Janus will be responsible for the design, development, manufacture, marketing, sales, support and warranty of individual locking solutions, while PTI will be responsible for the same logistics on access-control and security solutions. The companies will collaborate on the design, development and integration of products that provide secure access control to individual self-storage units, including automated overlocking, continuous monitoring and interior (inside-the-door) electronic locks, according to a press release.
“We are delighted to put this agreement in place with PTI Security Systems,” said David Curtis, president of Janus. “From our perspective, the key to providing a superior door-locking solution is to be able to integrate and leverage the expertise, hardware and software solutions, and market share that PTI has demonstrated [with our own] expertise and experience. Ultimately, the self-storage owner/operator and their tenants will both benefit from this relationship.”
“With our respective market coverage, market share and expertise, this agreement allows us to collaborate and focus on creating great individual door-locking and access-control solutions that are not found in the industry today,” added Lance Comstock, president and CEO of PTI.
Based in Scottsdale, Ariz., PTI has a sales office in Asheville, N.C., and international partners in Asia, Australia, Europe and New Zealand. It has installed more than 25,000 security systems in more than 30 countries.
Headquartered in Temple, Ga., Janus has six U.S. locations as well as manufacturing facilities in Europe, Mexico and South Africa. A plant in Brazil is expected to open later this year. The company is owned by Saw Mill Capital Partners LP, a New York-based private equity investment fund managed by Saw Mill Capital LLC.
