As I join Euro-Locks (a Lowe and Fletcher company) it is my first foray into the manufacturing side of the security industry. Choosing to do it with a sixth-generation 129 year old global company that makes 60 million locks a year is exciting. The history, craftsmanship, character, and technological innovation of Lowe and Fletcher is matched by few within the security industry. I find that very appealing.
