ERLANGER, KY—Fortress Interlocks open its new Erlanger, Kentucky facility on February 8, 2013 in a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. The new premises position the Fortress UK-based safety products company for continued U.S. growth.

Fortress Interlocks has been at the forefront of developments in safety interlocking for over forty years. A market leader in the design and manufacture of interlock systems, Fortress has an enviable track record of project implementation.

When it outgrew its current space, Fortress chose to stay in the same conveniently located northern Kentucky city of Erlanger, upgrading to new facilities. Now just five minutes from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, customers can easily visit for on-site training and demonstrations of the company’s safety access and control systems.

The facility’s state-of-the-art conference capabilities enable live conference calls with the Fortress UK manufacturing facility. With additional square footage and warehouse space, some light manufacturing will be possible locally to reduce lead times on common assemblies.

The office opening was commemorated with a visit from ambassadors of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Chamber members Steve Harrington of ProSource and Tammy Trimble of Zalla Companies joined Fortress employees Josie Dewald, Mark Gilvin and Mike Martin for a tour of the new space and ribbon cutting ceremony.

Existing phone, fax and e-mail contacts remain the same.

The new mailing address is:
1455 Jamike Ave., Suite 200;
Erlanger, KY,  41018
