MLA Approved

As part of our continued investment in our own talent we are pleased to announce that Andy and Martin are now Qualified Master Locksmiths. Huge congratulations to them both!

The Master Locksmiths Association (MLA) is the UK’s largest trade association for locksmiths & a non-profit making body; established to set and promote standards of conduct, practice and materials within locksmithing.

The MLA encourages its members to further their knowledge through ongoing education, regional meetings, seminars and the information disseminated through its membership magazine Keyways.

Largest & longest established locksmiths association in the UK

Standards of entry to the MLA are high and its motto of “Skill and Integrity” emphasise its determination to ensure that the public, government and industry receive the correct service and advice on security matters from its members.

From a small friendly meeting of ‘like-minded’ locksmiths in London, it has evolved into the professional organisation that it is today.

The first meeting group instigated the embryonic Master Locksmiths Association in 1958 and in 1986 it became a limited company. 1994 saw a major restructure and now the membership is worldwide.
