Salto has bought Gantner Electronic, a manufacturer that specializes in access systems, electronic locking and locker systems, cashless payment, cash register and billing systems, and more.

“The addition of Gantner to the SALTO portfolio offers a very bright future for our ability to continue to deliver the absolute best in electronic access control solutions,” says Javier Roquero, the co-founder and CEO of Salto.

“The Gantner product suite offers a variety of innovative locking solutions as well as cashless payment and ticketing systems that enrich and diversify our product offering and will enhance the end-user experience. We are thrilled to welcome Gantner to the Salto family.”

With the addition of Gantner, the Salto Group has a combined workforce of 1200 employees in 40 countries, including more than 230 dedicated to R&D, a turnover of $US304 million and over a million access points delivered each year.

“Thanks to the new partnership with Salto, we can expand our product portfolio, take advantage of important synergies, better target our markets and address customer segments with precision. This puts us in an optimal position to continue our dynamic growth,” says Elmar Hartmann, CEO Gantner Group.
