About Global Portable Security (GPS)
GPS is a business unit within Allegion that was created to bring together the acquisitions of AXA and Trelock with the Kryptonite brand to maximize the potential of these three leading bicycle lock and light brands around the world. In addition to mobile security, the AXA brand also provides security for homes and buildings in the form of hinges, window releases, window locks, door hardware, and access control systems.
Our Veenendaal site has a long and rich history, dating back to 1902. The basis for one of the two current successful core businesses is already established in the twenties, the forerunner of the present company started production and sales of hardware. Twenty years later, a ring lock for bicycles was introduced. This marks the start of a range of bike components, the second core activity as it is now. The range of products of Home Security contains hinges, window stays, window- and door fittings, and access management. The product range of Bike Security contains bicycle locks, lighting products, IoT smart solutions, and chainguards. Product development is done in-house by our own product and engineering team. A part of our products is produced in our own factories which are located in Veenendaal (NL), Clamecy (F), and Zawiercie (PL).
Consumers and businesses are increasingly looking for a healthy, green, and environmentally sustainable way to move around cities all across Europe. The result is a growing, dynamic and innovative bicycle industry that is constantly on the move.
