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 CRH Group SWS UK has been able to gain knowledge and experience from its sister companies and work with them to mutual benefit. The end of 2011 bought the end of an era and the founder and Managing Director of SWS UK Andrew Dootson retired from his role. With Colin Reoch appointed as the new Managing Director another exciting chapter in SWS UK's history begins.
