For Advanced Keys, 2017 has seen very positive developments with a new move and new contracts all occurring this year. Since its launch in 2003, as an independent key wholesaler to just three companies, the business has evolved substantially and gone from strength to strength. Due to a substantial increase in demand for products from the range the company has recently moved to larger premises in Birmingham.
As a UK based trade supplier of car keys, fobs, remotes and transponders, the company has established a reputation for quality and reliability, now supplying its range globally. Most recently Advanced Keys has been appointed as the UK distributor for The Diagnostic Box, a company which offers worldwide support to customers with new, modern technologies for the automotive and marine industries.
With many large customer accounts on board, the move to new premises has become a necessity for the leading wholesale supplier, with a diverse range available and customer support services that include a range of simple to use diagnostic tools.
Advanced Keys are proud of their flexible approach to business which assists customers when looking to cope with the changing demands of the automotive sector as it develops. The new offices can stock more items and this will boost productivity and enable the company to continue to grow its customer base in the future.
Over the last few years Advanced Keys has progressed to selling products to locksmiths and technicians worldwide. The friendly, flexible approach to business has been a major contributing factor to the success of the company with the team committed to offering the best in customer service.
Kim Stanier, Managing Director comments, “All sized businesses are welcome and we work alongside customers on their own terms, whether that is single locksmith traders who prefer to speak to individuals at the firm, or larger corporations who use the online facilities to place orders via the click and buy system.”
The company offers a comprehensive range of automotive products all of which complement the huge range of key programming systems available. With vehicle manufacturers developing technology at a fast rate, as a response to increased vehicle crime, Advanced Keys has taken a progressive approach to developing improvements in the portfolio in a bid to help their customers to cope with the diversity of part numbers required to supply spare and lost keys as well as to cover for the increase in car thefts and subsequent requirement for replacement keys/remote controls and fitment of anti-theft devices.
Today, most vehicle keys are fitted with electronic chips which fit into the head of a key or circuit board of a central locking remote. This holds a code which is transmitted to the vehicle’s immobiliser and as long as it matches, it will allow the vehicle to be started and to continue running. As this type of technology has developed there are now more modern models which use rolling (cryptographic) codes to improve the security of the entire system.
The skill and expertise of the team is well recognised and it is these qualities that customers have come to rely upon.
Kim Stanier continues, “We are all extremely proud that we have been selected as the UK distributor for The Diagnostic Box, It is a testament to the skills and services we offer and will help us to continue to grow and thrive.
With a more diverse product range, the move to larger premises and top quality services, the company can continue to accommodate customer needs even as technology evolves and industry demands on locksmiths and technicians increases.
Kim Stanier, concludes: “The growth of Advanced Keys has been phenomenal over the past few years, and moving to new premises with improved facilities will help the company to continue to capitalise on new opportunities.
Providing a range of specialist products allows us to help customers across the country to prosper, as we tailor our services to meet the growing needs of their own business.”
