Allegion acquires Unicell Architectural

Dublin, Ireleand and Quebec, Canada

Allegion plc, a leading global security products and solutions provider, through one of its subsidiaries, has acquired Unicel Architectural Corp. (Unicel Architectural).

Based in Quebec, Canada, Unicel Architectural is a leading North American manufacturer of advanced glass, timber and aluminum building solutions that support privacy, safety, energy efficiency and sustainability. The Unicel Architectural portfolio is primarily sold across Canada and the U.S. and installed in healthcare, education, government and other non-residential facilities.

Unicel Architectural will operate as part of the Allegion Americas segment, led by Allegion Senior Vice President Dave Ilardi.

“Unicel Architectural is a natural extension of Allegion’s core business, especially in institutional markets. This strategic combination will strengthen our portfolio of solutions and expand our specification capabilities,” Ilardi said. “Together, we will provide meaningful differentiation for customers with more comprehensive offerings.”

Unicel Architectural Co-Presidents Samuel Doyon-Bissonnette and Vincent Couturier are joining Allegion and will serve as leaders for Unicel Architectural within the Allegion Americas non-residential business, supporting a smooth transition and helping drive accelerated growth.

“Like Allegion and its brands, Unicel Architectural is a category inventor and market leader, recently celebrating 60 years of serving customers,” said Doyon-Bissonnette. “Combined, we’ll create more value for architects and other channel partners as trusted advisors on projects who help meet end-user needs.”

“We’ve had a long-standing partnership with Allegion brands Technical Glass Products, AD Systems and Stanley Access Technologies. This is an exciting evolution of our work together – one that means our customers can expect even more premium products and experiences,” Couturier added.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
