The ASSA ABLOY Group Helps Protect Olympic Athletes and Visitors at the Sochi Winter Olympics

As part of the project, ASSA ABLOY provided locking solutions for the new Sochi International Airport, which was purposely built for the Winter Olympics. In addition, the group also supplied a locking solution for the hotels hosting the Olympic athletes.

Providing a varied and comprehensive solution, the ASSA ABLOY Group installed automatic doors; hydraulic closers; mechanical and electromechanical locks; and other products on the many access points and doors at the airport. Additionally, more than 12,000 card-operated locks along with 6,000 safes were installed at the various hotels hosting the delegate athletes.

Micha Kimchi CEO of Mul-T-Lock, a member of the Assa Abloy Group, said, “Last year the Group substantially increased its activity in Russia, in part due to Sochi Winter Olympics project and is now preparing for another large-scale project in the region involving sports, the 2018 FIFA World Cup that will be played in Russia.”
