Entrematic has strengthened its presence in North America by its recent acquisition of 4Front, the U.S.-based loading dock and warehouse products company with leading brands such as Kelley and Serco. By combining established brands under one umbrella, Entrematic now boasts one of the world’s most complete ranges of entrance automation products, supported by dedicated specialists with extensive experience.

Entrematic is a strong business partner in entrance automation, aggregating nearly 200 years of specialist expertise and well-known brands such as Kelley, Serco, Westgate, Dynaco, Ditec, Hunter, EM and Normstahl, into a comprehensive offer.

“4Front’s solid market position, excellent products and experienced team make it a powerful addition to our growing portfolio of products and to our presence in North America” says Juan Vargues, president of Entrematic. “Entrematic has grown significantly in the last few years and we are now in a unique position to offer a complete product portfolio including premium quality products, leading-edge innovation and comprehensive technical expertise.”
