"Not long ago we had to increase prices by 5% because of a drop in the value of the British Pound. That now shows an upward trend. We have no idea if this will continue but we are offering all our customers an extra 5% off all purchases ordered and paid for in October 2013.
These can also be purchased from our authorised distributors around the world." Note: This does not apply to any special local prices that we have agreed to in the past and it does not apply to transponder chips.
Lockdecoders had a phenomenal show at Telford with sales generated across the range of equipment they offer.
MD Peter Southern reports that orders are still coming in from contacts they made there including an important new distributor for Italy. That will be the 41st country to which the firm will export its MiraClone transponder copying and advanced Eeprom device.
Lockdecoders claim to be right at the cutting edge of new technology for the auto locksmith, having been the first to do many things:
- The first automatic key cutting machine specialised for auto keys - the Miracle A5
- The first new generation cloning device with advance Eeprom facilities - the MiraClone
- The first to introduce the ability to clone 8C transponders
- The first all-in-one keycutting machine - auto, domestic, tubular, dimple keys - Miracle A9
- The first to show cloning to ID48 transponder chips
The latest innovation which was shown to the ALA last month is the world's first electronic car lock decoder. This excited huge interest amongst that group of purely specialised auto locksmiths.
Peter Southern tells us that "you ain't seen nothin' yet". The firm has three or four other projects in testing or prototype stages and another couple just on the drawing board.
He has visited 13 countries this year on business, Israel will be the 14th and the firm already has 7 overseas distributors and shows in the diary for 2014. Peter says that you can't just build a better mousetrap and then sit back hoping for buyers to find you. This is a new global era and you need to make positive contact with your markets and understand local conditions.
