Traka Celebrates 25 Years of Innovation


Traka, part of ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions, is celebrating its jubilee anniversary, marking 25 years since its ground-breaking formation

As the global leader in intelligent management solutions for keys and equipment, Traka was formed in 1995, following a successful trial with British Airways to assist them in the management of keys for their ground support vehicles.

Traka has since twice won the distinguished Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, in recognition of its innovative approach to key management and fast-paced international growth. 

In 2012, Traka was acquired by ASSA ABLOY, becoming part of the multi-billion pound global leader in door opening solutions.  Following ASSA ABLOY’s acquisition of eTag Solutions in late 2015, Traka Automotive was created, which together with the KEYper Systems acquisition in 2019 has led Traka Automotive to becoming the market leader in key management solutions to the automotive sector.

Traka now forms part of ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions, dedicated to reimagining how people move through their world.

Says Justin Sasse, Head of Traka Group – ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions:

No one could have predicted the intensity of events occurring this year, with the effects of COVID-19 felt on every business on a global scale.  As we all establish new ways of working, efficiency and business accountability are more integral than ever to meet discerning consumer demands, safely and securely.

Traka has a long record of adapting with innovation to changes and trends in the marketplace, and our 25th anniversary marks an important milestone in our development.

We now operate as a global organisation with local support working to defined processes, so that we are local when you need us and global when it counts. This is how we know we can continue to support future growth and prospects. And when we finally emerge from this pandemic, we will look forward to an exciting company-wide anniversary celebration!
