Humble beginnings

The land on which Valley Locksmiths & Security now resides had been on the market for about 12 months before my wife and I saw it, and we realised immediately that this was to be our new home.

The business had been operating on the main street of Nuriootpa all its life. But it was too small to handle the additional security staff coming in. We noticed a property (circa 1920) for sale adjacent to the car park off the main street in Nuriootpa, saw the potential and purchased it immediately.

Twelve months were spent poring over plans and special mention here of the invaluable role of the staff in contributing to this process of planning a purpose-built structure. Building works commenced in July 2013 and  relocation commenced late in December 2013.

On the 6th January 2014 the new facility was open for business. Any concern that our customers would not be able to find us quickly evaporated, located as we now are at First Street, Nuriootpa, barely 200 yards from the old location.
