Squire is a family brand with great history which has been carried down through eight generations. Over this time, the one thing that’s kept us going is our ability to change with the world. It’s with this in mind we’re proud to introduce the new Squire brand.
It all started when William Squire began making locks in 1780, before most people would even lock their doors or protect their belongings. His early products included a small range of mechanism padlocks, door locks and cabinet locks.
In the early 1800s, Squire supplied locks to the British Army in the Napoleonic Wars. This led us to develop the first lever padlocks. Before long we were supplying locks to companies across the British Empire.
By the time Thomas joined him, his locks were famous enough for the company to be formally incorporated. In 1906, Henry Squire & Sons ltd was registered, marking the beginning of a legacy that continues to this day.
