About Global Portable Security (GPS)
GPS is the business unit within Allegion that was created to bring together the recent acquisitions of AXA and Trelock with the Kryptonite brand to maximize the potential of these three leading brands in bicycle locks and lighting around the world, with offices and manufacturing locations in four continents. In addition to portable security, the AXA brand also provides security for homes and buildings, mainly in the Benelux, in the form of hinges, window levers, window closures, door locks, door hardware and access control systems.
The scale and scope of bringing these Brands together from a development, technology and supply chain perspective whilst keeping their individual respective strength and position in the markets with the consumers, retailers and IBDs (Independent Bike Dealers) offers Allegion a unique opportunity to take a leading position in the portable security Aftermarket.
The combined strength of these brands offers the OEM bike manufacturers a real partner who can offer depth in range, brand, and technology along with a versatile integrated supply chain to create real customer value and differentiation.
