Our Experience

Since 1975 we have grown to be one of the UK's largest independent locksmith companies. Over the last 38 years we have gained a huge amount of technical and practical experience with nearly every type of security mechanism - from domestic door locks & commercial safe installations to hospital master key systems.

We are now able to supply nationwide a huge range of security products, most with next day delivery options.
