At the announcement of the public offer for Cardo on December 13, 2010, ASSA ABLOY communicated its intention to consolidate Cardo Entrance Solutions in ASSA ABLOY's division Entrance Systems and to sell the other businesses, i.e. Cardo Flow Solutions and Lorentzen & Wettre, that do not long term fit ASSA ABLOY's operations.
