Swiss firm Kaba and Germany’s Dorma Holding said on Thursday they plan to merge to form a top-three player in the building security and “access products” market, a category including door locks and keys.

“This will allow us to better and more quickly take advantage of opportunities that arise through megatrends such as urbanisation and digitalisation,” Dorma Chief Executive Thomas Wagner said in a statement.
