ADRS Solutions Limited have been acquired in line with DORMA’s stated aim to become the trusted global partner for premium access solutions and services.

ADRS has established itself as a strong partner to the retail sector of the UK Service Market, providing a full solution of service, modernisation and rapid screen work to its clients. Craig Gilmour, Regional Director UK & Ireland commented, “This acquisition builds upon DORMA’s previous acquisition of Ascot Doors Ltd in October of last year, which positioned us as a complete one-stop-shop solution for front to back of building access requirements”.

Paul Wright, ADRS’s Director stated, “We pride ourselves on our competitiveness, quality, efficiency and turn around, within the highly demanding retail environment. All relevant industry accreditations have been successfully awarded, along with committed steps to investing in our people and processes. Being a part of DORMA will help us to continue our company’s growth.”


ADRS Solutions Limited is based in Cambridge, and currently employs 45 people.

The business has grown rapidly and now encompasses full design, installation and maintenance.
