A message from Bill Partington, owner of AHC Safe & Lock:

“In 1954, my father opened a small retail hardware store in Ormond Beach and in 1964 it became one of the first Ace Hardware stores in the area.”

“As with most hardware stores of the time, a part of my father’s business was making duplicate keys for homes, auto-mobiles and wherever a lock was used.. But in a few years, it eventually became a major part of our business. At that time they were building the original Daytona Hilton. We furnished the hardware for that project and then a few years later we furnished the doors & frames for the Daytona Mall.”

“We eventually got away from the hardware business completely & evolved into the lock & security business. In 1976, we became AHC Lock & Key. We now have the reputation of being the ‘go to’ place for the best information, service and products in the security industry.”

“All of our field locksmith technicians, currently employed at AHC Safe & Lock have more than 100 years of combined Locksmithing experience. A term that is important when evaluating a Locksmith is that they are not fungible. Any locksmith may have general locksmith knowledge, however, they also may have specific knowledge and skills to complete tasks that require additional training & experience, that another locksmith may not have. So you can’t assume that every locksmith is capable of all tasks. It becomes important in choosing a locksmith, that they are asked what their experience level is.”

“Our Locksmiths have experience with many different varieties of Security Hardware Installations. We also believe in continuing education which prepares us for the technological advances that come into the industry on a regular basis.” – Bill Partington II
