Assa Abloy Hospitality has restructured its organizational hierarchy, with hospitality becoming one of several specialized market-specific units now operating under the new Assa Abloy Global Solutions name.

Along with its mission to "reimagine how people move through their world," a driving force behind the company’s restructuring has been its focus on investing in businesses and solutions that can be scaled on a global level. This will allow Assa Abloy Global Solutions to fully cater to the numerous and unique security challenges facing diverse markets around the world today. 

The company’s ongoing evolution has included expanding into other vertical markets such as marine, elderly care, student housing, asset management and logistics. Assa Abloy Global Solutions provides each vertical market with a dedicated direct sales channel and ensures that its platforms, software and support services are readily available and tailorable, regardless of region or business background.
 
While the hotel market will maintain its own specialized hospitality business unit of Assa Abloy Global Solutions, the expansion into vertical markets allows the company to ensure that its comprehensive range of solutions is made available to any market sector, while providing a greater depth of industry-specific expertise.
