ASSA ABLOY Inc / Adams Rite Manufacturing Co

OFT closed case: Anticipated acquisition by ASSA ABLOY Inc of Adams Rite Manufacturing Co

Affected market: Door locks and related products

No. ME/2322/06

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the anticipated acquisition of Adams Rite Manufacturing Co by ASSA ABLOY Inc does not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 (the Act), because neither the UK turnover test nor the share of supply test in section 23 of the Act is met. A relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
