The ASSA ABLOY difference

Australian madesince 1934, ASSA ABLOY’s Lockwood
brand has been a leader in the local locking industry, securing homes and businesses throughout the nation.

From its humble beginnings in Melbourne 82 years ago, to the trusted household name it has become today, Lockwood continues to embrace its heritage and maintain its strong foothold of local manufacturing operations in Australia.

A large range of their products remain locally produced at their 14 acre manufacturing facility in Oakleigh, Melbourne. In a time where local production dwindles, Lookwook continue to employ a team of 400 staff, 178 of which have been with the company for 10 years or more. This is a true testament to the company fostering its value in being an employer of choice.
