Managing Director to manage Union

David Wigglesworth, Managing Director of leading security solutions provider, Adams Rite has been appointed as Managing Director of UNION, a leading locking hardware specialist, as well.

The Adams Rite and UNION businesses are being brought together at the new Adams Rite and UNION headquarters in Wolverhampton, but will remain as two independent companies within parent company ASSA ABLOY UK.

David’s experience with Adams Rite and the synergies between the two brands meant he had all the attributes needed to be Managing Director of UNION.  The two companies will be run by two discrete teams under one roof and David’s role will be to harness the strengths of each organisation to help with the continued growth and development of both brands.

David commented on the appointment and how the two companies will work together: “I am delighted to have been given this fantastic opportunity as MD of UNION.  Adams Rite and UNION have many parallels in the market sectors they service and what they offer to their respective customers; I will be looking to harness these and strengthen the customer offering for both businesses in my new role.  Customers will benefit from increased economies of scale and a dedicated combined customer services team who will offer the highest level of technical expertise in all the products we now provide.  I personally welcome the challenge of managing another business and look forward to helping both Adams Rite and UNION maintain and build on their sector leading positions.“
