Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, visits ASSA ABLOY Facilities

ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UKI has hosted Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street for a behind-the-scenes tour of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.

The Portobello site has been operating out of the West Midlands for many years, employing over 600 people, making up a large proportion of ASSA ABLOY UKI’s UK workforce.

The manufacturing site has seen significant investment over the past decade, and during his visit Mayor Andy Street was given a behind-the-scenes tour which focused on its operational excellence, including product innovation, manufacturing capabilities and investment in sustainability.

ASSA ABLOY UKI is proud of its investment in people and skills and during his visit, Mayor Andy Street met with many members of the operational teams, from apprentices at the start of their career to some of the longest-serving employees. 

Speaking about his visit to the facilities in Willenhall, Mayor Andy Street said: 
“ASSA ABLOY is an outstanding local business success story and I thoroughly enjoyed my 'behind-the-scenes' tour of its facilities. 

“After having the chance to interact with employees old and new – spanning the spectrum from apprentices to colleagues who have served the firm for many years – I gained a much deeper appreciation for the remarkable heritage of this company here in the West Midlands. 

“ASSA ABLOY, however, is not content to rest on its laurels. Rather, its investing in innovative manufacturing and charting a course for the organisation that will no doubt stand it in good stead in the months and years ahead.”

After seeing its range of mechanical products, alongside its new digital access control and smart home products, the tour concluded with Mayor Andy Street being presented with his very own personalised padlock to commemorate his visit.
