EVVA renew membership with Secured by Design

Austrian locking technology specialist EVVA is one of the latest companies to renew their membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.

EVVA, ‘Erfindungs-Versuchs-Verwertungs-Anstalt’ (Invention, Experimentation and Application Institute), is an Austrian family-owned business with its roots dating back to 1919. Over the years, the company developed its security products with its first patent for a cylinder padlock awarded in 1937. Today, EVVA is one of the leading European manufacturers of mechanical and electronic locking systems.


EVVA continue to run research, development and production facilities at their company headquarters in Vienna and export their products across the world.

EVVA’s exclusive distribution partner in the UK is SBD member company member Aldridge Security Ltd, who have been proudly selling EVVA products since 1996.

SBD has not only accompanied us for many years but is also a productive source of inspiration for future developments in the security industry, crime prevention and therefore also for EVVA. We are looking forward to our continued work with SBD".

SBD Development Doug Skins said: “I am delighted that EVVA have renewed their membership with SBD, they are an innovative company who are keen supporters of SBD and I am looking forward to our continued relationship with them over the coming years”.
