UK-based manufacturers the Guardian Lock and Engineering Company joins Banham Group

February 18, 2021

It has recently been confirmed that independent lock manufacturers, the Guardian Lock and Engineering Company, have joined the Banham Group.

A major UK provider of home security systems, Banham – who have worked alongside Guardian for over 20 years on the production of locks such as the company’s L2000 – continue their business growth whilst strengthening what is a long-standing relationship.

Although Guardian has joined the Banham Group, they will continue to operate independently, with David Bate, Director, continuing to oversee the company’s progress. Bate remarked: “This is a very proud moment in Guardian’s history as we become part of one of the most iconic security providers in the UK. We’ve worked very closely with Banham for many years, almost since our own beginning, and we’ve always had a long and trusted relationship.

“Having built up Guardian over the last 40 years in Willenhall, we’re very proud of everything that we have achieved and the benchmark we’ve set for British lock manufacturing. This partnership marks the start of a new phase in our company’s history and we look forward to the wealth of opportunities ahead.”

Charles Hallatt, Executive Chairman at Banham, added: “Banham is delighted to officially welcome Guardian to the Banham Group family. We’ve worked with David and his team for many years and have a wonderful collaborative relationship that has been integral to Banham’s success.

“Our shared values have been instrumental in producing iconic locks. This is an exciting development for Banham and we look forward to working even closer with Guardian.”
