dormakaba acquires Chartwell Doors and Security Solutions Ltd

Chartwell Doors and Security Solutions Ltd have been acquired by dormakaba UK in a move which will complement the UK’s current service offering and will provide an opportunity for a greater customer reach.  It further demonstrates dormakaba’s commitment and ambition to become the trusted industry leader. 

Paul Wright, Regional Service director talks about the process and future strength:

“I’m really pleased with how well our businesses have interacted over this successful process and I am delighted to welcome Chartwell Doors into our Service organisation. This exciting news, with their clear customer first attitude and reputation will further strengthen us in our Service Delivery whilst seeing us continue with profitable growth.  We look forward to welcoming everyone from Chartwell Doors into our business and continuing our journey over the new financial year.” 

Chartwell Doors and Security Solutions Ltd are Service specialists in automatic, security and fabrication solutions. The head office is in Fareham, near Portsmouth, and houses the office functions and fabrication facilities. 

Ken Norish, Managing Director of Chartwell Doors shared his thoughts:

“Chartwell Doors has grown strongly over the past 10 years – but the business had reached a natural limit that couldn’t be exceeded without external investment. This is what dormakaba will bring – along with access to an additional customer base, a much broader pool of engineers and the back-office systems we need to ensure efficiency. This is an exciting new horizon for both Chartwell Doors and dormakaba. I’m looking forward to working together to achieve continued success in our sector.”
