About Lockpoint

Lockpoint was established in Newcastle upon Tyne in the 1989 and began life by providing specialist security consultancy for clients. As the company developed, it moved to new premises at North Shields, recording its first major manufacturing breakthrough in 2010, with the development of the Gryphon, which provides the best possible security for ATMs, or cash machines by combining a wall of steel with sophisticated electronic wizardry.

Today Lockpoint’s innovative security products stand between vulnerable people and the criminal.

British-designed and precision manufactured in the UK, Lockpoint’s products are tailored to provide security in an insecure world by countering specific criminal threats and keeping staff, stock and customers safe.
