“It’s such an important accreditation to have in the fenestration industry”

Manufacturers of high security, innovative hardware, Ingenious Locks and Hardware have renewed their membership with Secured by Design (SBD).

Ingenious was founded in 2014 by Nigel Hutchinson and Stuart Carpenter, backed by Pemberstone Ventures. With both Nigel and Stuart having worked in the UK hardware market and manufacturing sectors for most of their working life, they set out to create a flexible and agile manufacturing business, who could partner the market – designing and developing a range of hardware to suit the latest industry standards, and always with an “eye” on the commercial and technical requirements of the fenestration industry.

Offering a fresh outlook on supplying the marketplace, Ingenious designed and developed a range of high quality, durable and secure products to serve the UK Window and Door sector.

Ingenious works in partnership with its customers and supply chain partners, on innovative hardware designs and ideas. They have an unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and quality, and all products are produced to the very latest industry standards.

Ingenious have an extensive range of locks and security products that have all achieved the Police Preferred Specification.

Nigel Hutchinson, Managing Director of Ingenious, said “We’re more than happy to be continuing our relationship with SBD. It’s such an important accreditation to have in the fenestration industry and provides our customers and partners trust in what we do. We think it’s such a good initiative and we’re delighted to be part of it.”

Ruari Robertson, Secured by Design, said “I am delighted that Ingenious Locks & Hardware have renewed their valued membership for a further three years. Their commitment to the scheme, as well as driving innovation and improvement within the industry, is second to none and I look forward to continuing our relationship.”
