Arden Dies Secure Under Citylock And Securikey

Physical security supplier, Securikey, has been a trusted partner to many UK companies for over forty years and has recently teamed up with City Lock And Safe Ltd to supply their high quality products and expertise to Stockport based manufacturer Arden Dies & Tooling Ltd.

One of the largest sites in Europe for die and tooling manufacture, Arden Dies offer a comprehensive range of services in supplying full tooling packages for products as diverse as cartons, corrugated packaging, membrane switches, flexible circuits and greetings cards. In 2013, Arden Dies invested £430,000 to expand their production facilities in order to keep pace with rising demand, investing in new laser cutting and engraving machinery as well as refurbishing part of their factory in Marple, Stockport. During these improvements, Managing Director Martin Poynter decided that improved physical assets should be matched by improved security in order to protect this recent investment.

In partnership with City Lock & Safe Ltd, Securikey Ltd supplied two 48 Capacity Key Vaults, two 100 Capacity Key Vaults and Two Size 2 Mini Vaults to Arden’s purpose-built 3000 square metre facility. George Clarke, Managing Director of City Lock & Safe Ltd, says that the Securikey safes and key cabinets were chosen specifically for their high quality and durability. Built from a heavy duty steel with a double walled construction, the Mini Vault Gold FR is durable and fire resistant and ideal for storing vital documents and, the key vaults, also made from steel, feature locking by security deadlock and can be further secured by incorporating the cabinet into an existing suited system. Another important feature of the key vault is the five pin Euro profile cylinder which can be easily changed in seconds should the integrity of the unit be breached; an important feature for a busy organisation like Arden Dies which runs 24 hours a day with over 120 members of staff. Arden Dies Managing Director, Martin Poynter says; “We have a long history of making a significant investment in our production facilities in order to keep the business competitive,” a statement that is reflected in the choice of high quality, durable security products from Securikey as Martin explains, “The key safes and mini vaults provided by City Lock and Safe Ltd and Securikey are of excellent quality and value and have very much helped to improve security in our increasingly busy warehouse and offices.”

Family run business, City Lock And Safe Ltd is one of the premier locksmith, safe engineer and security companies in the North West of England and, like Securikey, is a member of the Master Locksmiths’ Association. City Lock & Safe Ltd was proud to combine their wealth of knowledge and expertise with Securikey to help protect Arden Dies’ investment and to offer practical advice on future purchases as the company expands further.
