REAMSTOWN, Pa — Access control solutions provider DORMA has acquired Rutherford Controls Int’l Corp. (RCI) for an undisclosed amount.
DORMA acquired the Cambridge, Ontario-based company through DORMA Americas. The deal, which closed Nov. 8, extends DORMA’s portfolio of ANSI-compliant electromechanical access control products and systems, and strengthens the company’s presence in the North American market.
“The Americas region provides great opportunities for gaining market share based on our ability to offer integrated premium access solutions,” DORMA Americas Area President Wil VandeWiel says. “The RCI acquisition represents a big step forward in this regard.”
With more than 50 employees throughout North and South America, RCI has a subsidiary in Virginia, as well as a new warehouse opening in Southern California. As part of the transaction, RCI will keep its name, and DORMA will continue to operate the RCI business as usual including all customers, employees, sales representatives, suppliers and locations. DORMA has appointed Josh Horvath as integration manager to help ease the transition.
“RCI is excited to play a key role in accelerating DORMA’s growth throughout the Americas,” RCI President Eric Gowland says. “Joining forces with DORMA will further enhance both our companies’ abilities to dominate our industry as innovative leaders in access control solutions.”
