HAVING earlier this year marked 15 years of providing specialist locksmith services to clients across the region, Craig Fensome has further reason to celebrate after qualifying as a Master Locksmith.
The accreditation means that Craig, who runs Fensome Locksmiths in Northampton, can offer the ultimate seal of approval and peace of mind to customers calling on his services.
The Master Locksmiths Association has its own certification process whereby companies are vetted and regularly inspected. It currently has about 350 approved companies.
Founded by Craig in 2004, Fensome Locksmiths has built a reputation of fast response, dependable no call-out charge service, 24 hours seven days a week, helping customers gain access to their premises when keys are lost or a lock has failed, and specialises in UPVC locking mechanisms, patio door, window and garage locks.
For commercial clients, the company can provide mechanical access control systems and window and door bars and grilles for additional security. Recent projects have included supplying 100 restricted padlocks with keys, and restricted cylinder locks to electric cupboards at a client's premises.
Craig said: "We pride ourselves on our honesty and reliability, and the business has grown thanks to just having the right attitude to helping people and making sure their premises, whether it's at home or commercial premises are safe and secure.
"But I felt I wanted to add a recognised accreditation to that reputation and so I decided to go for Master Locksmith status. Customers need reassurance and peace of mind that they are using reliable, trustworthy locksmiths and getting quality products and systems, so it meant a lot to me to give them that guarantee. It's important to choose the right person when security is paramount and using a Master Locksmith gives you that reassurance."
Customers range from large and small businesses to property companies, as well as domestic customers. All parts and labour come with a 12-month warranty, so customers have the peace of mind they need.
