Advanced Safe & Lock acquires area locksmith firm

Rochester Business Journal
January 14, 2014

Advanced Safe & Lock Inc. has acquired Access Lock & Key Inc.

Access Lock & Key was founded by brothers Ronald and Gary Ruggles in 1989, aimed at serving residential and commercial customers in northeast Rochester. Ruggles sold the company due to health reasons. His brother, Gary passed away in 2011.

“We opened an Access Lock & Key store on Waring Road and had a mobile van to provide auto and 24/7 locksmith services,” said Ronald Ruggles, co-founder of Access Lock & Key in a statement.  “I am confident that Advanced Safe & Lock will provide exceptional service for Access Lock & Key’s customers.”

Advanced Safe & Lock has a showroom at 1459 Lake Ave. and five mobile units, adding to the company’s presence in the community. Ruggles’son Matt joined ASL’s team in 2012. 

“With this acquisition, Advanced Safe & Lock is Rochester’s premier neighborhood locksmith, serving all of Monroe County and surrounding areas,” said Frank Cicha, president of Advanced Safe & Lock in a statement.

Advanced Safe & Lock was established 11 years ago in Webster.  Its current Lake Avenue location was formerly owned and operated by Town & Country Locksmiths Inc. for 23 years, until it was acquired by ASL in 2005, officials say.
