About Us

Leading the way since 1985, SWS UK is a leading manufacturer of physical security products and garage doors.

Understanding market needs and demands has been key to our success, we are always striving to offer the best product with the highest level of service both during and after the sales process.

Established in 1985 and after outgrowing our previous premises we moved to purpose built premises in Claughton Lancashire in December 2000. With a work force of just over 100 we are very proud to be a British manufacturer and with all of our processes under one roof our customer service is unrivalled as we can look after all orders personally from start to finish.

With an in house research and development team we are able to continually refine our product range ensuring we are always at the forefront of technology. In addition to enhancing the existing range, there is also a focus on developing new lines which have been industry firsts. We are particularly proud of our Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) and Police approved 'Secured By Design' products giving us the most comprehensive range from any security manufacturer.  

With the backing of StellaGroup, SWS UK has been able to gain knowledge and experience from its sister companies and work with them to mutual benefit.  In March 2018 SWS UK announced Kevin Lindeque as its new Managing Director. Kevin has 18 years within the business in a commercial role and took over from Colin Reoch who after 23 years with SWS is embarking on a new challenge as Managing Director of Alulux.

Security, colour to match our front door, good quality and neat finish to the door. We are impressed with the quiet operation of the door, and the safety feature of stopping as soon as touching an object.

We had one before (fitted by the same company) at our previous home and were very happy with it. We wanted the convenience of the remote control, together with the great streamlined look of the door. Lovely product.

This was a replacement door for an up & over, which had been damaged. To have improved features such as better security, ease of use, aesthetically much more pleasing. Highly recommend to any friends/relatives.
