Serrature also are the major shareholder in another well established Italian company that specialize in the manufacture of locks and keys for the highly specialized Italian car manufacturing sector. Giobert Keys were established in 1953 by Giovanni Bertolino in the city of Turin.
In the 1960's through '70's Giobert Keys manufactured locks and keys for the well known car maker Lancia. They began producing locks and keys for car maker Fiat in the mid '80's.
Many of today's high security keys and locks, found across many car brands are attributed to the research and development of Giobert Keys.
In 1997 they were one of the first auto lock manufacturers to supply RFID programmed keys built into the keyheads.
In the noughties, they developed newer products that found their way into the Fiat 500 production cars and they also developed lock and key products for motorcycle makers too.
The locksmith industry has used Italian made lock and key products for many years because their quality is first class. Companies like Silca, became a locksmith industry stalwart, producing many top quality key machines and key blanks found all over the world.
With Fiat owning a significant portion (majority) of USA car maker Chrysler, expect to find more Serrature made products in local car options.
We find it interesting that some Chrysler dealerships have had their interest peaked by the offerings of Serrature Meroni commercial and residential lock and key products recently too.
