Nicholasville, KY LTI and Q Security are pleased to announce the acquisition of NL Lock, the brainchild of legendary inventor and entrepreneur Klaus “Nick” Gartner.
“I look forward to carrying on the Miller family tradition of innovation in and service to the security industry,” said Clay Miller, CEO of LTI and Q Security. “Nick and I first worked together at Sargent & Greenleaf in the early 1970s and have remained close friends - and sometimes competitors - in the ensuing decades. Nick has always had a knack for seemingly simple yet elegant product design. Fewer parts mean fewer problems, as the NL Lock product line aptly demonstrates.”
Following the sale of LaGard Inc., Gartner founded NL Lock in 2003 with a line of cost-effective, easy-to-use and easy-to-service electronic locks. Says Gartner, “I have always strived to produce high-quality security locks that will still be in service decades from now. Clay and his team have the knowledge and ability to continue my legacy.”
Concurrent with the acquisition, LP Locks will merge with NL Lock. Susan Gartner Papa will continue to represent the brand as she has since 2007.
