LEGIC Identsystems Ltd has gained another important license partner with ASSA ABLOY (Switzerland) Ltd. To develop new contactless locking systems, KESO has opted for LEGIC’s 4000 reader series.

"To develop contactless door locks, we are using LEGIC's outstanding technology", said Rageth Kieni, Head of Product Management at ASSA ABLOY (Switzerland) Ltd., formerly KESO Ltd. "The flexibility of the LEGIC reader module is also important, because customers are free to choose the transponder they want.”

In 2012, the company became known as ASSA ABLOY (Switzerland) Ltd.

I am convinced that some outstanding new products will be brought onto the market", said Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales, Business Development and Purchasing, LEGIC Identsystems Ltd.
