Dorma USA Inc. has significantly expanded its U.S. presence by acquiring Door Controls Inc., an independent automatic-door distributor. Acquired on July 3, Kansas City-based Door Controls enables Dorma to provide its customers with enhanced products solutions and services in the Midwest and strongly reinforces Dorma’s current strong installation and service presence in the Eastern region of the country, according to the announcement.

The service sector is continuing to grow throughout the country as buildings age and need to be retrofitted for new technologies that will enable increased access control and energy efficiency. The partnership with Door Controls, coupled with the recent acquisition of security solutions provider Rutherford Controls International, will allow Dorma to provide a broader spectrum of product and services to the customer, according to the release.

“The door industry continues to provide us with a strong platform and one in which we want to accelerate our capabilities to provide our customers innovative door technology and premium access solutions and services,” says Wil VandeWiel, Dorma AME’s area president.
