When A1 Lock and Safe located on Guess Road in Durham, North Carolina went out of business in 2001, Ricky Archer and his wife Brenda Archer saw it as an opportunity to start the company anew. They are lucky they did, because today the company has served its community for a run of thirteen years. To me this means that for thirteen years the Archers have devoted themselves to equipping commercial buyers with the security devices they need to protect their industries.   

Think about how many times you have walked out of your hotel room without being sure the door closed behind you. Think about how many times you have locked a building without being sure you turned the key the right way. Think about the number of individuals that could walk by and notice you in these scenarios. 

Their Chapel Hill and Durham locksmiths specialists provide master keys for hotels and motels, locks for commercial foreclosures, re-keying for whatever the reason may be, and they can even prevent doors from being left open so that you do not have to worry. Even if it is in the middle of night, A1 Lock and Safe is available to help because they are open 24 hours. Commercial businesses, especially, can depend on a business like A1 Lock and Safe to keep their companies running smoothly and safely. 

Not only do they provide quality work at an affordable price, they care about the other businesses that depend on them. When asked to describe the most gratifying part of their work, for instance, the Archers said, “after a job has been completed, knowing they went above and beyond to satisfying our customers.” Given that their business philosophy is to treat people “honestly and fair,” I believed them. 

Their story does not end here. 

In the future they hope to expand their services to include a larger variety of locks and safes and several more service vans. With their growing industries, A1 Lock and Safe also hopes to expand in the areas of alarm security and access control for both commercial and residential customers. With thirteen lucky years of experience, which is more than any business can ask for, I believe they will continue to achieve their goals.
