ABUS Lock Company
Phoenix, AZ
Established 1924

You don’t become a brand with expertise in preventive security technology overnight. But when ABUS started making traditional padlocks in 1924, they were already setting standards. The founders’ strategy was simple and timeless: ‘Security Calls For Quality!’ It is that principle that successful generations have carried on and developed over the years.  A family-owned firm for over 85 years, ABUS has grown with its skilled, friendly staff and consistent customer orientation into a strong, independent, globally operating group of companies. People trust in ABUS security, tried and tested a million times. From its ‘Home Market’ base in Germany, ABUS operates on an international level and is the market leader and trend-setter in most of the countries of Europe.  In North and Central America, in parts of Africa, in Australia and in many other countries, ‘ABUS – Security Tech Germany’ stands for exemplary quality and has become a byword for security.

ABUS stands for security tried and tested a million times that you can trust. That’s a name we feel obliged to live up to – and we monitor it on a regular basis. That’s why we commissioned EMNID, one of the leading market research institutes in Germany, to carry out a study on ABUS’s brand familiarity and brand satisfaction in relation to the competition.  EMNID confirms that the brand familiarity and high levels of brand satisfaction attest to the high regard in which consumers hold the ABUS brand. It’s good to know that brand quality is held in such high esteem.

ABUS is the first manufacturer to launch an Environmentally Friendly “GREEN” line of Safety Lockout Products called the Ecolution® Series. Products in this line are made of high quality recycled raw materials and all packaging and labels are made from 100% recycled paper products.  In addition to being made from recycled raw materials, this line also has also been created to withstand any environment where corrosion is a problem. 

Innovative, corrosion-resistant coatings; high-quality materials that ensure durability; lubricants for use in the food industry; PVC-free vinyl coatings; and packaging made from recycled and recyclable material – these “ingredients” provide the basis for the new “ABUS Ecolution®” product range. With its ecologically committed approach, security specialist, ABUS, is making a clear statement about its environmental credentials, while also serving the increasing demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly products.

Not only are the products themselves characterized by a high degree of environmental sustainability. The no waste production of locks is also part of the integral “ABUS Ecolution” approach; its so-called “Zero-Waste Policy” in which the materials used are accumulated, recycled and/or re-used.

ABUS continues to focus on waste reduction - not only for cost savings, but with the knowledge that we can contribute to the preservation of our natural resources. The combination of increased weather resistance and high-recycled content, make the new ABUS Ecolution® Series a great solution to meet today’s sustainability needs while preserving our natural resources and environment.
