Midwest Security Products Joins ABLOY’s National Accounts Partner Program

ABLOY says it created the National Accounts Partner program to recognize its integrator partners who demonstrate leadership, unique added-value capabilities and commercial relationships with critical infrastructure customers in North America.

IRVING, Texas — ABLOY Critical Infrastructure Global Solutions announces Midwest Security Products has joined its new National Accounts Partner program for security systems integrators in North America.

Sylvania, Ohio-based Midwest Security Products is a provider of access control security solutions that counts utilities, corporations, government and military installations among its critical infrastructure clientele.

ABLOY says it created the National Accounts Partner program to recognize its integrator partners who demonstrate leadership, unique added-value capabilities and commercial relationships with critical infrastructure customers in North America.

It also offers access to a variety of benefits that help develop their expertise and increase their capabilities to customize and deliver advanced ABLOY security technologies.

Doug Schoenrock, the founder and president of Midwest Security Products, says he believes this partnership will benefit his critical infrastructure customers and says the timing is right on several fronts.

“We have enjoyed our relationship with ABLOY as a strategic partner and their products are always in demand with our customers, especially now with heightened concerns around infrastructure security. We are heavily invested in working side-by-side with ABLOY to drive new opportunities in key markets including clean power, water treatment and utilities.”

Since 1985, Midwest Security Products has provided high security products and consulting services. Its 40,000 square-foot facility is home to a full production department, in house engineering and manufacturing, sales and national account end user support.

The company also provides installation and break-fix service nationwide. These capabilities are what separates them from other integrators and distributors in the security systems industry, ABLOY says.

Jerry Burhans, managing director of ABLOY Critical Infrastructure Global Solutions, explains how a deep integration of ABLOY technologies with Midwest’s value-added services and solutions can provide a superior solution to customers.

“We are proud to recognize Midwest with this special credential from our factory. They take a totally different approach because they are deeply involved in planning a customer’s system from the ground up. Our competence center in Texas supports their engineering department for a complete understanding of our technologies. Add to this their capability to design and manufacture custom products needed to fully implement a customer solution, and you have something truly unique in this industry.”

Schoenrock adds, “We’re able to to take a valuable product technology from ABLOY and build an entirely new product around it to solve some unusual security challenges that our customers face. This often involves harsh weather conditions, especially in open spaces such as wind farms or any operation involving water. Our service is all encompassing too, from recordkeeping and training to the implementation of a system and the backend support.”

One product that Midwest Security Products cites as being in high-demand by its customers is the ABLOY PROTEC2 CLIQ system. It combines both mechanical and electronic aspects consisting of heavy duty, super weatherproof padlocks that stand up to the harshest environments, and keys that provide full access control functionality.

“Midwest Security Products installed PROTEC2 CLIQ, which helped their customers to establish full control and meet new NERC CIP regulations in the utility sector. Whether it is an access control system on this scale or creating a lock for a very specific purpose, Midwest Security Products and ABLOY together have the resources that others can’t match,” says Burhans.
