dormakaba Holding AG Rümlang
dormakaba Holding AG, with its registered office in Rümlang, Zurich, operates in over 130 countries with more than 16,000 employees and numerous cooperating partners. In 2015, Dorma and Kaba merged and were renamed dormakaba Holding AG.
The strong growth of the former Kaba Holding AG in Rümlang plus the associated need for additional office space and simultaneous outsourcing of production processes to other locations meant that the space requirements of the existing company facilities changed significantly.
dormakaba Holding AG, which merged with Dorma AG in 2015, therefore decided to convert its Rümlang production facility – set up in 1966 and expanded in 1985 – and perform major reconstruction works to create a state-of-the art building.
Customer's requirement for dormakaba
- Efficient access solutions; sourcing all products and solutions in-house wherever possible

- Intelligent planning for a wide range of security zones
- One solution for all 4 locations in Switzerland
In addition to improving the energy efficiency of the building envelope and technology (MINERGIE certification), the redevelopment plan will also extend the existing production hall on the top floor by using glass cubes to create attractive office work stations in an interesting environment that reflects the company history.
Future increases in staff numbers have been catered for by installing additional “Cubicals”. The space on the ground floor, with a staff restaurant, offices and production space, will also be completely renovated, and the remaining production areas leased to an outside company.
A glazed footbridge will connect the existing office building with the 2nd floor of the former production hall and create an interesting entrance area for visitors and customers.
The Kaba exos access management system offers maximum flexibility for access to the premises by persons and vehicles as well as for access to the building. It was essential to integrate online and offline solutions for individual applications with some of the latest technologies at headquarters. dormakaba is a specialist supplier of door products and solutions, primarily using in-house products and solutions wherever possible. Thanks to intelligent planning, a total of 25 different products from 5 areas (System Solutions Access and Time, Mechanical Locking Systems, Door Systems, Glass Systems, Door Control) with a total of 413 products could be used with the door and access management system.
