Associated Security is 70 years old


2015 marks Associated Security’s 70th Birthday - 70 extremely successful years that have seen the company develop from locksmiths and safe installers to become the industry leaders in the supply, installation and service of the widest range of sophisticated security products available. Over the last 70 years the company has achieved a number of accomplishments, developed our product and service range and gained an awful lot of experience along the way. 

The company was established in 1945 by John Sproston - a respected, well known locksmith who opened his first shop in Manchester. In 1954, Johns nephew - Roy Turner Snr joined the company which moved to a larger premises and began installing and supplying safes. The company has since stayed with their family roots, and the current directors - Stephen Turner (Managing Director) and Roy Turner Jnr (Operations Director) sons of Roy Turner Snr still maintain the original family values of the company today. 

Fast forward to today and Associated Security are ranked as industry leaders within our field, with 7 depots and 100 skilled employees nationwide. 

Our Head Office located in the heart of Manchester is where the core of the business is conducted, with a large show room, our UK based help desk and offices. Our dedicated staff help us to ensure100% client satisfaction, with strategically placed engineers across the UK  we can provide guaranteed 2 hour responses for emergency situations. 

The company has been able to grow via a number of acquisitions, the latest being SMP Security in Telford. SMP Security are British safe manufacturers with over 40 years experience and this acquisition has enabled us to manufacture bespoke safes for clients on top of our existing services, resulting in one complete solution. 

We have also obtained a number of internationally recognised accreditations, some of which are externally audited by the awarding bodies. This gives our customers the confidence that our products and services will always be of the highest quality.   

So, what’s in the future for Associated? We’re always looking at ways to streamline the customer experience by adding products to our portfolio, making our systems more efficient and making information more readily available. With that in mind, in 2015 we’re launching our new website as well as looking into other areas of business.
