Al Scott Lock & Safe Ltd. was started in Vancouver from the ground up in 1973.

The first service truck was a 1963 GMC pickup truck with a homemade camper that served as the shop.

The business was started by Allan and his wife Eileen Scott.

Al saw the need for a locksmith company in Vancouver that could provide professional solutions—specifically master key systems for commercial buildings—while keeping accurate files of the codes for the convenience of the building management.
