THE  db logo_edited.jpg  BUSINESS

Our company was set up in January 2004 by David Burroughs.


David decided that he had to give up all the creature comforts of being employed and launch into the world of self employment with all the attendant peaks & troughs. From the beginning he was determined to be both Mobile & Shop-based so that the company would be taken seriously by all.


A suitable retail premises was found and taken over in Gaol Lane, Sudbury. It was meant to be, and from 2004 till late 2011 the company grew and expanded its operations and client base. Throughout 2010 and 2011 it became very apparent that the business needed more space for both the retail, mobile and bench-based operations to grow and expand. In December 2011 the lease was signed for the premises in Hamilton Road, Sudbury and two months of sheer hard work and graft followed to strip out and convert the building to our needs.


In December 2020 the business moved to the current location of Unit 7A Buntings Farm, Pentlow, Sudbury where we have a Retail Area from where we can display and sell all sorts of locking products. We also have a fully-fitted workshop and bench areas where we work on Customers Requirements, in-house.


We look forward to continuing to work with our established, and to meeting new clients, to help with their security requirements.
