The owner of Five Star Security Services, Graham Watts, has passed the British Locksmiths Institute qualification with the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA). A long-term director of the firm, Graham recently took over the security business, which has been providing security systems for West Country businesses, educational institutions, care homes and homeowners for over 25 years.
In response to the award, Dr Steffan George, Development Director at the MLA, commented: “It is great to see locksmiths coming forward and taking the challenge of the British Locksmiths Institute exam to prove their competence in this increasingly technical industry, and since Five Star Security Services also have MLA Approved Company status they can demonstrate they uphold the highest of industry standards that our organisation represents. We wish Graham well in the future”.
Paul Spencer, Head of Marketing UK & Ireland for Kaba, which is also based in Tiverton, believes the Master Locksmith qualification is a great credit to the Five Star business: “Graham is a customer of ours and it gives us great confidence in his company’s capabilities when we know he has the Master Locksmith qualification.”
Graham Watts said: “We have seen an increase in the demand for master key control systems within businesses and homes with multiple occupancy that require one key to access a front door as well as other rooms. This qualification means we can respond to the market demands, and offer yet another specialist service that will keep our clients’ property safe and secure.”
