– From 1965, the manufacturing of brass padlocks began, in response to high quality demands.
– In 1975, the company diversified into the manufacture of safety locks.
– In 1985, the company produced its first Thirard locks and eventually established a department “flowchart”.

Since then, Thirard have covered every area of security: Locks and latches with A2P mark approval, applies locks, cylinder rods and fittings for doors, door handles, safes (standard EN 14450) equipped with top class 1300 lock that was introduced to the market. Having their products classified A2P or NF CE demonstrates the reliability and rigor brought to their achievement.
