Keysplease is the trading name of Ammerhurst Limited which has been established for over 30 years and is an accredited member of the Guild of Keycutters within the Master Locksmiths Association.
Ammerhurst was originally conceived as a solution for a locker company's after sales service problem. They had sold the lockers and inevitably customers would lose their locker keys and need replacements, often as a matter of urgency. The company wanted to provide a good after sales service but it was geared up to supply large quantities of lockers, not a few replacement keys from a potential choice of thousands of different key numbers.
Instead of trying to solve the problem themselves the locker company would simply put the customer in touch with Ammerhurst who were set up specifically to supply the relevant keys quickly and efficiently.
Various other furniture manufacturers also realised this need and gradually Ammerhurst built up a reputation of providing a fast and accurate service for replacement keys and locks for all types of furniture. Ammerhurst now has a loyal customer base of over 9,000 customers ranging from the largest blue chip companies to private individuals and from sectors as diverse as schools, swimming pools, banks, hospitals, food companies, department stores, offices, actually anywhere that has things which need to be kept locked.
Just before the millennium the company was taken over by Simon Style, who has injected a whole new approach. Coming from a background as finance director in the high-tec industry, Simon has brought with him the experience of being a customer who needed problems solved fast. He also realised that the future was going to be online, not that you need to be a dotcom company, rather that if your normal business is to survive and thrive, it must be able to handle e-commerce as a crucial addition to the current methods of trading.
With new systems and processes to provide a more efficient service, with more staff to provide advice and assistance and with more products available than ever before Ammerhurst has positioned itself to be a major player in this special niche market as we move into the 21st Century.
