Partnership With Nokē Will Further the Growth and Development of the SecurGuard® Smart Entry System

Temple, GA Dec 13, 2018 – Janus International Group, LLC (“Janus”), the leading global manufacturer and supplier of turn-key building solutions and new technology for the self-storage industry, today announced the acquisition of Nokē, Inc. (“Nokē”) the creator of high tech smart locking solutions. The acquisition will allow both companies to continue to develop and enhance the SecurGuard® Smart Entry System that was released earlier this year.

The combination of Janus’ European operations and ASD will continue to develop, manufacture and install market leading solutions for the international self-storage market. The combined organization now offers a full suite of solutions for operators and builders of self-storage facilities, including the SecurGuard® Smart Entry System.

David Curtis, Founder and CEO of Janus said of the acquisitions, “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. 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.”
