A new electromechanical locking business, based at Artarmon in Sydney, has been launched by Bob Graham and Marc Bindner. The company supplies a wide range of electromechanical locking solutions through Australia’s leading distribution businesses.

LOX Locking has been founded by directors Bob Graham and Marc Bindner. The company will supply electric strikes, electromagnetic locks, electromechanical drop bolts and similar products through an exclusive distributor client list that includes CSD Central Security Distribution, FREEWAY Security (Adelaide), Mainline Security (Melbourne/Brisbane), Hills, LSC Locksmiths Supply Company, NET Security (Adelaide/Melbourne) Seadan Security and Sprint Intercom.

“We’re very excited to have launched this new business,” said LOX Locking director, Marc Bindner. “We’re doing what we’re doing best, and that’s supply the world’s best electromechanical locks – this business is very niche, very focused, and very committed to providing the best customer service in the industry.

“Our electromechanical locking products will only be supplied through our security wholesale distribution partners – we will never go direct to market. In our opinion, there’s a temptation to have too many distributors but this is a mistake that we won’t be making. Our exclusive list of wholesale partners knows the market, they know what they are doing, and we will support them 100 per cent.”

According to Bob Graham, launching LOX Locking in an uncertain business environment created by the COVID pandemic is challenging but the LOX team believes access control is a key element of any COVID safe electronic security application, and this will drive growth.

“With any access control solution, absolute reliability is the key,” said Graham. “We believe that LOX manufactures some of the best electromechanical locking products in the world – and we are not saying that lightly and without reason. We will support these products unstintingly – it’s a trust relationship between us and our distributors and their installer and integrator customers.”

According to Graham there are 95 products in the LOX Locking product list, with 35 being core products and the rest accessories. He said the product list may increase in the future, but the focus will remain very tight.

“It’s obviously exciting launching a new company in 2020 but the LOX Locking team has vast experience with this excellent product range and we are confident we can deliver our customers a service that is second to none,” Graham said.
