About Us

Illinois Lock’s entrepreneurial roots started growing in 1930 with a focus on innovative security products. Our first mission was protecting and creating security barriers for vending and arcade applications in the form of locks and cam locks. Our success in protecting these applications lead to new opportunities with customers and markets which valued higher levels of functionality and security.

Today we are a global leader in the design and manufacture of engineered access and security hardware. Designing and manufacturing custom & modified solutions are a large focus for our OEM teams. We support our other partners with an expanding standard product line, which now includes: cam locks, switch locks, enclosure locks, padlocks, electronic locks, Bluetooth locks, rotary latches, hinges, handles, pulls, slides, and lock cores. We focus in the end-markets of Aerospace, Computers & Electronics, Medical, Storage & Enclosures, Vehicle Accessories, Vending & Self-service Kiosks.

Our passion for engineering drives us to create solutions to meet our customer’s design challenges – adding haptics and functionality to support their brand equity. Our manufacturing experience continually propels us forward, inspired to improve and grow our capabilities. Our once small factory in Chicago is now a global footprint, focused on creating growth opportunities for our employees, partners and shareholders.
