International. UTC Climate, Controls & Security has completed its acquisition of S2 Security, which will be combined with Lenel, to create LenelS2, which aims to become a world leader in advanced access control systems and services.

Through the collective strengths of both companies, LenelS2 will provide scalable, state-of-the-art customer solutions in the access control and security management systems industry, serving global companies for small and medium enterprises.

"LenelS2 brings together two world-class teams with complementary strengths," said Alex Housten, VP and GM, Fire & Security Products, UTC Climate, Controls & Security. "Together, we have more than 50.000 systems installed worldwide, we look forward to providing enhanced service capabilities and offerings for our customers, and accelerate our access control and video-centric solutions for smart buildings around the world."

Lenel president Jeff Stanek will lead the new organization and S2 Security founder and CEO John Moss will serve as product manager. The broader leadership team will be made up of key members of each company, ensuring that the combined company will bring together the best of both worlds to serve its customers.

"These are two leading brands that share a strong culture of innovation and commitment to customer service," said Stanek. "Together, we will harness the power of our talented workforce to better serve the needs of customers and offer them more options."

"The depth of Lenel's OnGuard platform and BlueDiamond mobile credentialing along with the breadth of the S2 ecosystem and product channel creates a new offering that is much greater than the sum of its parts," added Moss. "We will continue to advance the capabilities of all product lines, including NetBox and OnGuard."
