Brisant burst on to the demanding locksmiths’ market in 2013 and quickly won them over with a ‘lock for locksmiths’ and received the same success in the fenestration market. Brisant has made a massive impact in security with Ultion and Lock Lock, and more recently with Ultion Smart. Brisant has also been smashing standards with their innovations by transforming corrosion resistance (and style) with Lock Lock and Sweet. Brisant is on a mission to help installers sell more, by making Britain’s homes a lot more secure and their doors look a lot less tatty. And there‘s a lot to do for a hardware house.
BGF’s investment is a milestone in Brisant’s development, and it marks the start of an exciting new era for the business.
We’ve reached a point where we have more ideas for innovative hardware than we could bring to market, and with BGF as an invested partner we can explore these opportunities and channels with this incredible pool of experience, knowledge and contacts. I think it’s also significant that such a prominent investor recognises the growth and potential of our sector.Nick Dutton, joint-CEO
