Vancouver-based family-owned locksmith business

About Us

Family-owned business

The locksmith trade has grown deep roots in the Poson family for over 3 generations. The business started in Johannesburg, South Africa in the 70s. In the early years, life was not easy for Chinese families in South Africa where apartheid and racial inequalities were strong.  A good education was not a real option for many non-whites.  Therefore, many Chinese people became shopkeepers and adopted trades. Ours was locksmithing, which we became very proficient in. Our once small and modest locksmith business which was founded by Tony Poson, grew into a very successful business which is continued by Marc, Daryl, and Jason. 

In the city of Johannesburg, the timing was right, as the population was rapidly growing and so was the security problem. We see the same scenario playing out in Vancouver. With the city’s rapid growth, we unfortunately came to observe ‘big city issues’ such as an increased security demand.  This is why Securewise exists in Vancouver to ensure that our community has a piece of mind.
