Message from the Chairman

In 1889 John Lowe and his son-in-law Thomas Fletcher began their lock making business in Willenhall, England. They were one of more than 300 similar lock making businesses in the area at the time.

Today the company they founded employs 1,000 staff across two divisions that focus on locking systems for industry and on products and services that make the built environment safer, with operations in the UK, Europe and USA.

So the Group has come a long way since 1889 and yet it is still a family business with strong family values. As the fifth generation of my family to lead the business I believe that our long family heritage enables us to invest in our future with confidence and conviction.
