"Experience Makes the Difference"
The Master Locksmith began in 1996 out of the back of a Colt Vista, when Greg Rash couldn’t find work in the local Sequim area in his field of expertise – locksmithing. Knowing he wanted to settle in the area, and after commuting for several weeks to Seattle where he worked as a sales rep for a locksmith wholesaler, he used his many years of expertise in locksmithing and open a locksmith shop in Sequim.
After the first year as a mobile only locksmith and being well received by the community, it was decided that we should open a physical location. The original location of the shop was on Sequim Ave.
As the business grew, with more walk in customers, it became evident that the lack of parking and space in the small quarters was insufficient. Greg and his business partner, Shuana, moved the business to its current location at 445 W. Washington Street in the middle of Sequim.
When they first moved the shop to this locale, it began as a safe distribution warehouse with over 135 safes on the floor. Several years later, the distribution center closed since so many customers wanted special order safes, leaving more space as the business continued to grow.
In 1998, The Master Locksmith brought in a new decorative door hardware line, Emtek. Emtek was well received by customers not only due to its beauty and reasonable pricing package, but its versatility. It was a great addition to the store. Today, the showroom has a generous number of Emtek displays, where our customers can come see first-hand, and “feel” the product enabling them to not only see how well built it is but also how comfortable it is to use.
Greg, as a “Master Locksmith”, stays abreast of the technologies of our industry; keeping up to date with transponder technologies. We believe it is important to help educate our customers regarding the changes that are occurring within the locksmith and security industry.
