The Flying Locksmiths Difference

Our experience and business education are two of the main components that create the framework of The Flying Locksmiths leadership team. It began with William McMenimon working out of his Jeep with one key machine in 1946. He was training to become a pilot and working as a locksmith, hence the reason for the unusual name. He opened a small key shop in Boston and later moved to the nearby suburbs. When William retired, he passed the business down to his four sons; all of whom have moved on with the exception of Barry L McMenimon, who expanded the company into the highly recognizable business it is today! Barry’s sons, Brett and Barry P – the third generation – have expanded the company by franchising it’s business model and infusing the well-established family business with the convenience of modern technology. The combination of generations has created a blend of old-school ideals and new age tech, resulting in a mix that offers the newest products with a friendly neighborly smile.
