Diebold Inc. has sold two of its security solution business lines to Will-Burt Co., an Orrville, Ohio-based manufacturer of mast and tower elevation solutions for surveillance, communications and lighting systems. Lines purchased include the GSA-approved security filing cabinet and vault door business and the LINX Security Solutions business.
Diebold has outsourced manufacturing of its security filing cabinets and vault doors to Will-Burt since 1996. With the acquisition, these products will now be sold under the Will-Burt name.
"We have a long history building security cabinets and vault doors for Diebold," said Jeff Evans, Will-Burt president, CEO and chairman. "It is a business we know well. We look forward to selling this same product under the Will-Burt name, while maintaining the same high-quality production standards these products have enjoyed for nearly 17 years with Will-Burt."
Will-Burt has also acquired Diebold's LINX access control business line, including LINX GateMaster, an automated system that controls the entry of vehicles and pedestrians onto a base or campus setting, and LINX Predator Elite, a centralized system for access control and intrusion detection. It is the only integrated security solution certified for installation at U.S. Air Force nuclear weapon storage sites.
