Company History

In 1980 Keyprint was established from humble beginnings converting from a newspaper shop to a small Key Cutting retail business. It soon built up a good reputation as a specialised Key Cutting Shop in the City of Edinburgh.

In 1984 it started its wholesale business from the basement of the shop supplying Key Blanks, Key Machines, Key Accessories and Padlocks and within a couple of years, as the business grew, it moved to a small industrial unit nearby.

In 1996 Keyprint moved to a purpose built facility where we are currently based. The premises comprise of a showroom with a trade counter, a warehouse for over 9000 product lines, a locksmith workshop for all master keying work and a key cutting workshop for the trade.

A Training Academy was established at the premises in 2008. The training facility was fully-equipped to enable locksmiths and security specialists to improve their knowledge on key cutting identification, key cutting equipment, software for keys and master keying cylinders, uPVC locks, access control, various security locks and opening tools techniques.

Our training courses place strong emphasis on a hands-on approach. We aim to equip individuals with the imagination and practical techniques to identify obstacles to aid in effective door entry for their clients. Therefore, each of our training courses combines a portion of theory in addition to practical implementation.
