For more than 60 years, Capitol Industries has been active in the innovation and production of security products. It started with legendary entrepreneur, Aaron Fish, who bought a die casting factory and turned it into a global company, then called Unican Security Systems, through the invention and production of the still popular mechanical push-button lock. Certified ISO 9001:2008 Capitol Industries Inc. is now privately owned and manufactures security products and components for a multitude of industries. In addition to locks, the Montreal-based company makes everything from furniture hardware and key safes to precision tools and latch protectors.

The Capitol team prides itself on providing quality products, strict adherence to specifications, on-the-spot expertise, personalized service and speedy turnaround, which means customers’ needs can be satisfied in days instead of months. Capitol’s vertically-integrated structure provides all services under one roof. It is a one-stop shop from customer contact and quotation, through to design, tool manufacturing, casting, machining, finishing and assembly. This structure enables customers to place smaller orders more frequently and helps Capitol respond to changing demands quicker than distant offshore suppliers, offering customers unparalleled value.

The success and longevity of Capitol Industries shows that a lean, focused and innovative Canadian enterprise can compete with overseas manufacturers that rely on inexpensive labor to remain competitive.

Over the last few years, Capitol has focused on the development of magnetic locking technologies to bring about innovative solutions to existing applications. With a different, easy-to-use key system, products can now be made with features such as weather resistance and pick resistance at an affordable price. Our Magnetic Cam Lock is a great example of how quality, performance and affordability can all come together to make a high-value, low-cost product.

Look for newly available products in the Magnetic Camlock line, as well as our new Magnetic Padlock in 2017, offering the best weather protection available for a padlock to date, at an affordable price.
