John Fenton 1929-2020

Its with the saddest of hearts that we had to say goodbye to our founder John Fenton (My Dad) he was a true gentleman, an amazing business man and the best Dad anyone could ever wish for.

Those of you of a certain age will remember him as the man who introduced the Lockey brand to the UK back in 1982………..a reminder of his journey at the time:

Total Product Sales Ltd was Established in 1982, founded by John Fenton with the introduction of Lockey Digital door locks the ‘original’ mechanical push button door lock of it’s kind, a product that was set to follow closely in the steps of the well known brands Unican & Simplex mechanical push button door locks.

John’s years of experience in the field of management and sales and his aptitude for knowing a good thing when he saw it led him to Japan were he met with the inventors of the Lockey Digital a new product just about ready to go into production.

3 days later John left Japan having secured the UK sole agency for Lockey.

The Lockey brand has evolved over the years and now 37 years later, we are proud to say it still remains the people’s choice when quality and reliability rises above the dreaded cost factor.

With Lockey as the influence, it led Total Product Sales to expand on the idea of Keyless & wireless locking systems and operating devices.

This took John on yet another trip abroad, this time to South Africa were he met the manufacturers of Sentry remote control transmitters and receivers, and again he returned having secured another UK agency for Total Product Sales.
