Jacksons Security is one of Tasmania’s – and Australia’s – oldest and most trusted security and locksmithing companies. Locksmith and lock manufacturer Francis Jackson opened Jacksons Locksmithing in Launceston in 1883. At the time, Jackson considered himself the “only practical lock maker in Australasia.”
In 1910, Francis brought son David “Syd” Sydney Jackson into the business, Later, his sons W.H. “Bill” Jackson worked on locksmithing and gunsmithing for the company, while T.A. “Tom” Jackson was employed as an accountant.
Jacksons expanded into brass works in 1919. In 1928, the business moved into 106 Cameron St, Launceston. It made its headquarters there for over 76 years.
Jacksons Locksmithing, later Jacksons Security, has become a mainstay in the Launceston community and Tasmania at large, offering a suite of security services beyond traditional locksmithing, proving relevant and reliable in today’s modern age.
