Our History

Our story begins in 1945 when we began trading as Sprostons in Manchester. John Stanley Sproston became a well trusted local locksmith establishing a loyal customer base in the area which soon grew to include government bodies, banks and commercial customers. Due to the continued growth, John’s nephew, Roy Turner Sr came aboard in 1952. 1979 saw Roy’s two sons Stephen and Roy join the business to continue with the business development, giving John the opportunity to retire. Stephen and Roy remain active directors to this day.

Working with independent and major customers, we still keep our family values at the heart of our business & with over 75 years’ experience, you can be confident; Your security is in safe hands.
