Advanced Entry Systems, with 35 employees, has provided service and installation of automatic, revolving and manual doors and related products for commercial and industrial customers for 25 years. It was a division of Stoner Electric Group.

It’s the second Dorma action in as many months.
It was in mid September that DORMA Americas announced it was moving its corporate headquarters from Reamstown to Lancaster.
DORMA Americas moved to the 570 Lausch Lane 9,000-square-foot space in mid October.
The new site, just off Manheim Pike near Chelsea Square,  initially houses 25 employees.
But the Manheim Township address also will provide DORMA Americas with much-needed room to grow.
The space in the Union Community Bank building, previously leased to RE/MAX Associates of Lancaster, accommodates up to 40 people.
Transferring were DORMA Americas’ area directors, merger and acquisition team, business analysis department, finance, accounting, and other shared services.
Renovations to the space feature DORMA Americas products such as door locks, door handles, door closers, and interior glass walls.
The cost of the renovations has not been disclosed.
Besides office and manufacturing in Reamstown, DORMA Americas also has manufacturing in Leola.
DORMA Americas has about 200 employees in Lancaster County, up 20 percent in the past year.
