Brisant Secure has acquired the business and intellectual property of Deseo Locking Systems Ltd for an undisclosed sum.

Essex-based Deseo is the home of the patented Deseo ALPS 3*cylinder, which incorporates the UK and European patented Automatic Lock Protection System (ALPS).

Deseo’s Marcus and Mark O’Sullivan are to remain with the business. Mark is joining the Brisant-Secure board as Deseo Director.

Brisant CEO Nick Dutton said: “This is our first Brisant Secure acquisition, and we’re excited to welcome Mark and Marcus, both successful innovators.

“Following the growth of our award winning, smart security range, including Ultion Nuki, Ultion Bolt and more recently our Ultion window handle range, this is a major step on the road to future proofing home security. And it’s a significant development in the evolution of Brisant as a hardware house.”

Mark O’Sullivan, pictured, left, with Nick Dutton, replied: “I don’t think Deseo Locking Systems could have found a better home with the coming together of two strong innovative cultures. Brisant will be an active partner with the resources and the mindset to help us develop the Deseo products and achieve the full potential of Deseo and Brisant Secure.

“In my new role as Deseo Director for Brisant Secure, the opportunities for synergy and growth are particularly exciting.”
