Growing your business

For a relatively small investment, key cutting generates high margins and very quick pay back time on your equipment.

The fundamental basis to success in key cutting is to have a range of keys available to match the markets needs. Our key board systems are tailored for the Irish market and this means that you have a strong range of all the popular key blanks allowing you to service the market in a comprehensive way. Our boards are laid out in a way that allows easier key blank identification as well as organised stock management. It is imperative that staff are well trained in identifying key blanks and in key cutting. Again this is where our training programme and ongoing customer helpline plays an important role. As in most businesses, satisfied customers and word of mouth play a big role in growing your reputation in key cutting.

Our key cutting range opens the door to other complimentary products which can add to your bottom line. We distribute a wide range of quality, competitively priced hardware and security products which compliment your key cutting business or sell as stand alone products.
