AccessSMT, founded in 1964, has evolved into a leading manufacturer and value-added distributor of doors, frames, finishing hardware, construction specialty products and access control devices in Western Canada and the US Pacific Northwest. The company primarily serves the mixed-use, multi-family residential market along with the industrial, commercial and institutional ("ICI") market segment.

The Wholesale Division sold security solutions and door hardware including mechanical security devices, access control, exit hardware, safes and other wholesale products operating across Canada to locksmiths and other industrial and commercial end markets.

Jeffrey Stone, Managing Director Speyside Equity, commented "The Wholesale Division was non-core to the primary AccessSMT platform and selling it was a strategic move to streamline the company and focus solely on the project management side of the business supplying doors, hardware and other Division 10 products for larger construction projects."
