About us


At the end of the 70’s, a new locking concept called «electro­magnetic lock» was created in the West of the United States.

It was firstly aimed at facilitating the installation of door locking systems, offering a higher quality and reliability than the existing electrical door openers.

A few years later, in the early 80’s, its creator travelled to Europe and met our group founders (HQMAG). He gave them the task to develop this new concept on the Continent and beyond. Aware of the potential of the electro­magnetic locks, a group policy was put in place.

The initial production centre was created and the distribution network quickly expanded, both geographically and economically. Then, many partnerships were developed with companies operating under their own brand or integrating our components in their finished products.

Over the decades, the reliability and exceptional quality of our products have formed our renowned reputation regarded by the professionals of the Access Management market. The strength of our origins naturally led us to name our products "HQMAG" which stands for High Quality electroMAGnet.
