ASSA ABLOY, the parent company of Yale, the leading access control provider, has recently acquired VHS Plastik Metal (VHS), a leading window and door hardware systems manufacturer based in Turkey.

Established in 1997, VHS got its start by manufacturing cylinders for locks, locking accessories and hardware for PVC windows and doors, as well as simple ventilation solutions. VHS has since expanded its range of high-performance products continuously, in line with the developments and growth of the window and door market. Today, VHS boasts some 440 employees in their main office and the brand’s factory, located in Silivri, close to Istanbul.

VHS will play an essential part in developing door and window security products with Yale in Turkey, reinforcing its long commitment to the local market. As a key player in the home security sector, Yale appreciates and recognises the skills, knowledge and experience that VHS will bring to its global family.

Now a part of Yale, VHS will be soft endorsed by the Yale global brand. Meaning VHS will keep its own visual identity and branding, and “part of Yale” messaging will be placed on all content. 

We are pleased to welcome VHS into the Yale family as part of the ASSA ABLOY Group. This acquisition will play an important next step in our strategy to grow market leadership in Turkey” – said Hasan Mavus, Business Unit Manager at Yale Turkey.

Speaking on the acquisition, Osman Özer, Managing Director of VHS, said – “As the managing director of VHS I am thrilled to be a part of the Yale Family. At VHS we believe this deal will accelerate the profitable growth of the company, and we are excited to see what will come in this new era under ASSA ABLOY.”
