About LSC

LSC has come a long way since Aubrey Findon Johnson established the company in 1926 and imported the first code cutting machine for cylinder keys to Australia.

A pioneer for the industry, Aubrey travelled the world researching and absorbing everything he could about the locksmithing industry with a desire to bring the latest advancements to Australia. He set up the foundation for LSC, which has enabled us to maintain and develop strong associations and partnerships with the locksmithing, security, building and hardware industries.




Today, we are a thriving business with operations in each state and a head office in North Melbourne with over 180 employees nationwide. We have one of the largest ranges of hardware and security products, which has expanded to more than 20,000 lines from leading manufacturers in the industry including Silca, ABUS, SALTO, Dormakaba, HID, Lockwood, Dahua Technology, AMC Alarms and BRAVA, to name a few.

We also stock our own range of locksets and other items to provide customers with a high quality product at a reasonable price.

While we have grown over the years, we have not lost sight of our main goal – to offer superior products to security professionals in Australasia, and continue to grow our product range and services.

LSC is a third generation family owned business, led by Managing Director Mark Johnson, and we have the same core values as when the business was first established. We are committed to delivering a knowledgeable, personal, and courteous service to our extensive customer base.

The company is also dedicated to ensuring those that purchase the products develop the same knowledge and understanding, which is why we offer extensive product training and customer support.

LSC is an integral part of the security and hardware industries in Australia and we have numerous historical links to major associations operating in the security and locksmithing area.
