Mike’s Lock Shop
Mike Cogan started to work in the “lock” business during his teen years when he worked for a Philadelphia locksmith company. Mike found the business fascinating. After serving with distinction in Vietnam in the US Navy as a jet engine mechanic, and later at the Naval Air War Center in Warminster, Mike received his BA from Temple University.
He started Mike’s Lock Shop as a mobile locksmith with one truck in 1972. Six months later he opened his first store in Warminster on Street Road. Within a few years he moved to a larger, more visible location on York Road. In 1980 he moved just one block to the current location. Mike built the business through involvement in the community.
He has served on the Board of Directors of the Greater Warminster Chamber of Commerce and the Warminster Rotary Club where he was awarded the Paul Harris Award for Outstanding Service to the Community. Mike has also served on the Board of Directors of the Greater Philadelphia Locksmith Association.
Mike is a true entrepreneur. He is not satisfied to simply install a lock as per a customer’s request; but prefers to work with his clients to properly identify their needs and deliver the best solution. This is what really sets Mike’s Lock Shop apart from other locksmiths. Mike, along with his son Dan, has built his complete security center by providing the best solutions for his clients’ security needs. The business has survived the test of time – 2017 will be our 45th Anniversary!
It is truly a family business. In 2005 they split the business into two separate corporations, both operating out of the same building. While Mike still runs Mike’s Lock Shop / Access Lock Technologies, his son Dan is president of Access Security Corp which installs integrated security systems that target larger businesses and institutions. Mike’s wife, Candy is head of accounting.
