British Standard Locksmiths are an established family run business, and have been serving Grantham and the surrounding areas for nearly 10 years, so as you can imagine we are always shocked to hear people say they’ve never heard of us!
Barry Meech started up the locksmith business, offering a 24 hour emergency service as well as general security services, working from the family home in Bourne.
Barry completed a year-long exam to qualify as a Master Locksmith and have British Standard Locksmiths approved by the Master Locksmiths Association. The Master Locksmiths Association (MLA) licenses its approved locksmithing companies through strict vetting and regular inspections, in order to ensure quality of service and provide peace of mind for the customer looking for a high-quality locksmith.
The MLA is recognised as the authoritative body for UK locksmithing by the police, the Home Office, the British Standards Institute and many other trade and professional bodies.
In February 2012 Barry opened the British Standard Locksmiths shop at Unit 5 Victor Way, to continue to offer customers the same professional services and also give them the chance to come in and have a look at the variation of products we can supply.
In October 2013 British Standard Locksmiths welcomed Sally to the team as a locksmith experienced in all aspects of the industry. Sally’s technical knowledge and her ability to adapt blanks to suit specific locks is second to none. This addition means that our locksmiths now have over 30 years experience between them.
