Our Background

David, the owner of County Locksmiths, started his career as a locksmiths apprentice in 1997 at a well established Newport based lock and safe company. He was taught from the bottom up as bench locksmith and then progressed to a locksmith engineer, providing call-out services for lock opening and repair. This included safe, vault and vehicle work, along with non-destructive warrant of entry work for bailiffs. 

He became self employed in 2003, where he continued his career and gained some high-level customers such as the
Celtic Manor Hotel and Resort, British Gas, Swalec and Gwent Police Force

David qualified as a Master Locksmith in 2009 and holds the British Locksmith Institute (BLI) qualification. 

He began specialising in automotive locksmithing in 2012 to the current day, where by using traditional locksmithing skills and advanced diagnostic equipment, David provides services to general motorists,  garages and large organisations such as the
