Alan Joynes

Director & Founder

Alan started his own business in 1965 working from 2 lock up garages and back then it was mainly carpentry and lock fitting. 

Over the years the business grew and was based in various sites eventually moving to Milton Street where Alan employed over 15 staff. 

These premises had large workshops, offices and a retail shop. Services included boarding up and replacing shop windows, supplying and fitting domestic wooden, aluminium and UPVC doors and windows.

In 1988 the business moved to the current Birchfield Road East address. Now services are mainly concentrated on locks, keys, trophies and engraving.

Alan loves his gardening and making home brewed wine and beer.

Sharon Joynes

Sharon Joynes


Sharon started working on Saturdays in the family business; on leaving school in 1985 this became a full time job for her.  The family business was very different back then and was based in Milton Street where she did a variety of jobs including fitting shop and domestic windows as well as cutting keys and fitting locks. 

Years of experience and an understanding of how a lock works really helps when cutting keys especially if a customer has had keys cut elsewhere and they don’t fit.

Sharon is the person you will most likely see in the shop and her many jobs include answering the phone, cutting keys, engraving trophies as well as the accounts.

Sharon has been involved in Scouting, loves camping and playing badminton.
