About North Branford
North Branford was incorporated as a town from neighboring Branford in 1831.
The previous year, local resident Maltby Fowler opened a button-making shop in the town. It’s subsequent success - along with the inventiveness of his six sons, who devised a range of machines to produce screws, embossed silk, pins, and horseshoe nails - saw the rise of new competing manufacturers along the town’s Farm River, significantly boosting the economic productivity of the small town.
In addition, the abundant supply of trap rock also made quarrying a significant contributory growth industry for the town.
Just as Maltby Fowler had six innovative and productive sons to actively contribute to the success of his button-making enterprise, we here at SURE LOCK & KEY were also founded as a family business, namely by four brothers with over 35 years experience in the industry, and with a vision to provide the very best local residential, commercial, and automotive locksmith service imaginable in the current marketplace.
