Burton Safes is celebrating 30 years in business. The Yorkshire-based security group was formed in 1990 by Norman Berry, who began selling safes to the region’s locksmiths from his garage. The business has enjoyed continued, sustainable growth, and today, the group employs a team of more than 60 people from its headquarters in Holmfirth and its manufacturing facility in Leeds.
With the in-person celebrations postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the group is focusing its 30th celebrations on supporting the UK locksmith industry during these times of crisis. As part of this, the company is launching a range of free, commemorative point of sale materials and 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.”
