ASSA ABLOY Named Elite Supplier New Haven, CT – Innovations in door opening solutions geared specifically for long term care and senior living facilities have earned ASSA ABLOY the Elite Supplier designation for the 2015 LINK Conference. This award is given to suppliers who participated in last year's conference and ranked as a top supplier based on provider evaluations of their level of preparation, consultation, innovation and overall value. Providers and developers as well as owners and renters have specific goals and needs for the senior living environment. They want their properties to feature the latest technologies, incorporate sleek design and have minimal impact on the environment. ASSA ABLOY Group brands recently introduced a number of new products designed to accommodate this rapidly growing population segment. Innovations such as SafeZone from Norton Door Controls and push/pull trim for Corbin Russwin and Sargent, address mobility and accessibility challenges that are common in environments for aging. “ASSA ABLOY values the exchange of ideas created by our participation in LINK,” said Marilyn Collins, Director of Business Development of Healthcare Networks and Systems for ASSA ABLOY Door Security Systems. “LINK presents an opportunity to demonstrate how our solutions can help senior living facilities be safe and secure while meeting today’s high standards for design and operational efficiency.” "Since we launched LINK in 2005, it has been a very efficient marketplace for long term care and senior living providers to learn about, meet with and source vendors. Our 'Elite' suppliers have shown themselves to bring great value to providers," said David Ellis, Managing Director of the LINK Conference. LINK is designed expressly for long term care and senior living executive teams who are looking to drive a buying initiative, discover the latest innovations, deepen vendor relationships and strengthen operational excellence.
