DORMA USA Inc. has once again expanded its U.S. presence by acquiring Advanced Entry Systems, one of the largest independent automatic door distributors in the Pacific Northwest. Portland, Oregon-headquartered Advanced Entry Systems enables DORMA to provide its customers with enhanced product solutions and services in the Northwest. The acquisition strongly reinforces DORMA’s installation and service presence throughout the United States.

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 Advanced Entry Systems, coupled with the recent acquisition of security solutions provider Farpointe Data Inc., will allow DORMA to provide a broader spectrum of products and services to the customer.

“The addition of Advanced Entry Systems provides an excellent fit to our already superior service and installation group and will provide our customers with the optimum door technology and access solution capabilities,” commented DORMA AME AREA President Reed Buettner. And continues, “The combination of Advanced Entry Systems and DORMA provides an excellent strategic and cultural fit. We are thrilled to have them join the DORMA team.
