Our Story

LockMasters USA, Inc began in 1993 by Tom and Pat Hails in Panama City, FL. They began by buying and rekeying padlocks to offer Keyed Alike padlocks to customers as this was hard to find at your local Hardware Store.

LockMasters USA, Inc. became a Master Lock Distributor in 1994.

In 1999, Heavy Construction Equipment Keys were added the product line as this was found to be in high demand from the current customers.

In addition to Master Lock, LockMasters USA, Inc became a distributor for multiple other security companies, including American Lock, Wilson Bohannon, CCL, ABUS, Abloy, Equipment Lock Company, Cargo Protectors, Wesguard and Strattec.

In 2011, Tom Hails was ready for retirement, so he searched for a person to take over his company. Angie Wooley began working at LockMasters USA, Inc. as the Marketing Director and then was trained to run the company and was named President of the Company in 2012.

In Feb 2020, LockMasters USA, Inc. moved to their current location at 1232 Jenks Avenue, Panama City, FL where they are now able to serve walk-in customers.
