Surelock McGill, a high security door hardware manufacturer based near London, UK, celebrated the opening of its first ever office in the United States Wednesday night, accompanied by Lexington Mayor Jim Gray and Kentucky State Governor Steve Beshear.
The office, located at 2380 Fortune Drive in Lexington, Kentucky, will handle sales, distribution, and technical support for North America.
John McGill, Surelock McGill President and Group Managing Director said during the event, “We were aware that Central Kentucky was the high security capital of the United States, and as time moved on we were introduced to more and more great people from Kentucky. Most have since become good friends. Soon it was apparent that Lexington was the only choice for us.”
