City Lock & Safe Keeping it in the Family

This year, Mul-T-Lock partners City Lock & Safe celebrate their 65th anniversary as a traditional locksmith, still under family ownership, and currently in its third generation.

Stockport-based, City Lock & Safe is a member of the Master Locksmith Association and has established itself as one of the North West’s leading Master Locksmiths, Safe Engineers and Architectural Ironmongers.

The valued locksmith also has a close connection to Mul-T-Lock, as Gavin Hough, Mul-T-Lock’s Regional Sales Manager for the Midlands and North West completed his apprenticeship with the team and his dad Neville worked there for 55 years from leaving school to retirement.

Says George Clarke, Director of City Lock & Safe:
“It’s amazing to think how far City Lock & Safe has come since it was established. I am sure our founding members, including my grandpa Ray, would be immensely proud of the company and team growth, which has all occurred without losing our family ties. 
“We have also stayed very close to the industry trends and proactive in meeting the needs of our customers. Working with partners such as Mul-T-Lock ensures we can evolve our product range and incorporate latest smart security solutions into our portfolio. Of course, it’s great to have Gavin as our RSM who knows the team and our business from his own experience, and that of Neville, who was a great and longstanding team member.”

City Lock & Safe operates across residential and commercial sites, specialising in offering Mul-T-Lock master key systems as a smart, scalable and efficient way to manage keys in operation. Working with customers to design cost-effective systems around locking requirements and incorporate a wide range of security solutions for homes and businesses.

Access control can be integrated into a master key system to add new levels of protection, and site and identity management.

Gavin Hough, Mul-T-Lock Regional Sales Manager added:
“City Lock & Safe will always hold a special place for me, as it’s where my dad worked through his entire career and I served my apprenticeship. I got to work ‘on the bench’ and really understand what’s involved in the locksmith industry. 
“Now working with Mul-T-Lock, I get to give back with the latest products and services we can offer to ensure that together, we can continue to offer trusted security products, both traditional and in access control. From all of us at Mul-T-Lock, we wish City Lock & Safe many congratulations on reaching 65 years, a fantastic achievement and we look forward to working with them for many more years to come.”
