Janus International Group LLC, a global manufacturer and supplier of building solutions and technology for the self-storage industry, has acquired Nokē Inc., a creator of smart-technology locking solutions, and Active Supply & Design Ltd. (ASD), a U.K.-based self-storage construction and design company.
The purchase of Nokē will allow Janus to enhance the SecurGuard Smart Entry System it released earlier this year, according to a press release. The acquisitions come on the heels of new SecurGuard features that were announced in October.
“We’re very excited to have Nokē and ASD join the Janus family, and are thrilled about the innovative solutions we’ll be providing to the self-storage industry on a global scale,” said Janus CEO David Curtis. “All three companies will continue to serve and support our customers with high-quality products and solutions to help them build and operate their businesses more efficiently.”
Janus partnered with Nokē earlier this year to combine Nokē’s smart-lock communication technology with SecurGuard. “We’re thrilled to be formalizing the partnership with Janus, and we’re excited to offer facility owners a more robust and high-tech security solution for their facilities while increasing their visibility, connectivity and control over their business,” said David Gengler, co-founder and CEO of Nokē.
Nokē designs and manufactures smart locks to improve key management and security for buildings, ships, trucks, utility cabinets, warehouses and other applications.
Established in 1991 by founder and principal Andrew Donaldson, ASD designs, manufactures and constructs self-storage systems and mezzanine floors.
Headquartered in Temple, Ga., and founded in 2002, Janus is a global manufacturer and supplier of roll-up and swing doors, hallway systems, and re-locatable storage units for the self-storage industry. It operates 10 U.S. locations as well as manufacturing facilities in Europe and Mexico.
