I’m the E-Commerce & Financial Administrator so I support the operations team and look after the day-to-day finance of the business. I use my Lockabox to lock the TV remote away so I can get on with my workout.

The idea

At some point, it’s happened to all of us. We’ve gone to a shared fridge to get lunch, only to find someone else has already helped themselves to our food. Our founder Peter Morris originally invented the Lockabox for just this reason, after one too many cheeky flatmates pinched his food from the fridge.

Our strong, lightweight, portable boxes have been helping to keep sandwiches (and anything else) safe ever since. These days people keep far more than just food in them, but the idea is still the same. The simple three-digit combination lock and tough polycarbonate construction wards off wandering fingers, so once your stuff is in your Lockabox One or Medi, you can relax: it’s not coming out until you say so.

2013

The lightbulb moment! Peter had the idea whilst at university, looking for a solution to stop fellow students helping themselves to his food.

2014

Development began as Pete created prototypes of his idea and began to plan how we could create a unique proposition for the market.

2015

Peter was able to secure a meeting with John Lewis to pitch Lockabox, and a very nervous young entrepreneur secured his first big contract!

2016

Lockabox One launched on Amazon UK. This was a big turning point for the business as we became a #1 bestseller and started selling into Germany, France, Italy & Spain.

 

2017

A big year as Lockabox One went from self-assembly to ready-to-use at the point of manufacture, meaning we were able to supply volumes for professional and trade markets.

 

2018

Our new and improved Lockabox began to generate attention – and sales – from organisations like the NHS, Royal Mail, Ocado, Cancer Research, HMIC, PWC and Anchor Health Care.

2019

By now we were selling globally and we released our brand new Lockabox One Medi Blue, which helped us boost our profile within the healthcare industry.

2020

We successfully worked from home as a team during the pandemic (while winning new clients and expanding into more territories), and became an approved supplier to the NHS supply chain.

2021

We’ve doubled the size of our team here in Devon and expanded our HQ and operations, as well as offering free shipping to the UK, AU, US and EU.
