KABA, the provider of Saflok™ and ILCO™ electronic locks, announced an agreement with LQ Management L.L.C., operator of La Quinta Inns & Suites, to install the ILCO 760 locking systems in approximately 140 La Quinta hotels. Implementation will begin in fall 2011.

“KABA ILCO products demonstrate the reliability that La Quinta wants for its operators and guests,” said Gerald Rodriguez, vice president of purchasing for LQ Management L.L.C.  “We were also impressed with KABA’s willingness to engage in a long-term partnership with La Quinta. This will enable us to provide security to our guests, and professional service and operational excellence to our hotels and their staff into the future.”

La Quinta began evaluating electronic lock system providers to replace its mechanical card locks in early 2010. This effort included field testing locks from several manufacturers to verify the best solution for La Quinta’s hotels.  After testing, La Quinta chose KABA ILCO 760 locks and the Front Desk Unit (FDU).

“We are proud to partner with La Quinta in this new venture,” said Kerry Hirschy, senior vice president of sales and marketing for KABA Hospitality. “La Quinta and KABA are both recognized for high standards of service and quality.  We look forward to a successful relationship built on mutual business principles and trust.”
