A BRIEF HISTORY ABOUT US
Carrying on the fine tradition of Thomas and James Winship when they opened their Locksmith / Blacksmith shop in 1776, little did these colonial tinkerers ever dream that one day they would be importing harness goods and leather ware along with marine and carriage hardware to later manufacture lock and clock parts to serve a growing Boston.
In 1790, Boston Lock was born and engaged exclusively in the distribution and manufacture of locking devices and hardware while other Winship Family members pursued clock making, luggage manufacture and cattle raising.
Today over 200 years later, Boston lock & Safe Co. Has grown beyond the boundaries of serving Olde Bostonia and New England by once again importing, manufacturing and conducting sales and service on a nationwide basis.
An elite corps of security consultants, Master Locksmiths and Safe Experts offer craftsmanship and integrity drawing from one of the largest selections of security hardware under one roof.
Having survived famine, wars and depressions, through all this the heir to a little Yankee firm is proud to boast its claim as America's Oldest Locksmith and continues to maintain high standards.
America's Oldest Locksmith has a long history going back to colonial times.
The shop has had several home locations throughout the years and our current location at 30 Lincoln Street in Brighton is where we expect to stay.
We are a team of 17 and have a fleet of 12 well equipped service vehicles that are mobile all over Metro Boston and the New England area.
Our technicians have no less than 4 years experience with the average being over eight years with the company. Most have brought prior training and experience as locksmiths as well as previous other trade experiences that enrich our abilities as a team that can get a job done.
As a team we have installed many locks, re-keyed many master key, high security and IC removable core systems over the years and have customers that know we have treated them right for many decades.
Our reputation as discount safe vendors and skilled technicians with integrity have gotten us a lot of recommendations over the years and a growing list of clientele that includes many major corporations and nationally based service providers that trust us to take care of their warranty and field services efficiently and at reasonable rates.
