Our Story

Lorient has an International reputation for designing and manufacturing a wide range of innovative door sealing solutions for the containment of fire, smoke, sound and energy.

With 40 years of accumulated knowledge we pride ourselves on offering products that are designed to save lives, preserve property and enhance quality of life. We recognise our responsibility to create well-designed products that will perform; products which are durable and reliable, and which genuinely improve the buildings they protect. By doing so, we can play our part in improving life safety and reducing building damage and loss.

We're proud to have been suppliers of quality sealing systems throughout the Middle East for over 30 years and now, with the advent of this new company; Lorient Gulf Building Materials Trading LLC, know that our customers in the region can only benefit and get greater customer service from our very own team. Operating out of our new central Dubai premise we are proud to offer a wide range of acoustic, smoke and fire seals, available from stock for fast delivery.

In December 2018, Lorient was acquired by ASSA ABLOY - the global leader in door opening solutions, dedicated to satisfying end-user needs for security, safety and convenience. Since its formation in 1994, ASSA ABLOY has grown from a regional company into an international group with about 47,500 employees, operations in more than 70 countries and sales of SEK 76 billion.

Kerry Hicks, Lorient Managing Director said: "We are excited to become a part of ASSA ABLOY as they bring a wealth of technology, resource and capability to support the continued development of our ability to serve our customers. It will create opportunities for both businesses to add greater value to our customers by offering a wider innovative product range."
