Security Locksmithing Ltd. was founded in 1974 by Thomas
J Benson and Albert Bordreau. They formed the corporation
after realizing that there was a growing need for an alternative
security service to the companies already in the market.
After working some years for the companies which would later
become their competition, the partners realized the need
for a better qualified locksmithing organization. And thus
in 1974 B&B was formed.
securities has changed drastically in the last 30 years.
In 1974, B&B's main customer was the servicing and installation
of banking security equipment. Eighty percent (80%) of the
business, back then, came from providing this type of service.
The other twenty percent (20%) came from the commercial,
industrial, and residential customers. Today, however, those
figures have changed greatly with the entire market flip
flopping from eighty percent (80%) being residential, industrial,
and commercial. While, the other twenty percent (20%) being
servicing of the our banking customers in the Maritimes.
The reasoning behind the turnabout, was that the banks in
the Maritimes have been centralized.

as Chubb, Tann Canada etc. Through contracts, they service
the banking industry across Canada; thus eliminating the
contracts with smaller regional businesses.

new and innovative products such as Card-Accessing Systems,

from its competition. In providing these services, all of
B&B's sales technicians are not only qualified in the
sales aspect of the product but are also, technically qualified
to do the service and installation.
