The group currently employs a team of more than 60 people. With it’s headquarters in Holmfirth and manufacturing facility in Leeds.

With celebrations postponed thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic. The group is focusing on supporting the UK locksmith industry during this time of crisis.

We are launching a range of free, commemorative point of sale materials. With expanded product literature to help drive sales for independent locksmiths across the country.

Ben Lewis, Director of Burton Safes, explains:

“We’ve come a long way in the last 30 years – our founder, Norman, used to deliver all the safes personally from the back of a Volvo Estate! Although a lot has changed, we’ve never lost sight of our roots, or the principles the business was founded on – doing business in the right way and looking after our customers. 

“We know what it is like to be a small business, and as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations, we want to reaffirm our commitment to all the independent locksmiths who have helped us to grow into the company we are today. We will continue to serve them by investing in our products, testing, and service, as we look to build and cement our position as a market leader in the UK.”
