– for more than 35 years
The origin of LockTec GmbH goes back to Scottish company RAAND, which as early as the 80s, was supplying electronic locker systems to stations and airports worldwide. Because locker systems ideally complement the product range of the SITEC Security and Technology group of companies (www.sitec.de), the Managing Director Olaf Clausen founded LockTec Ltd in Edinburgh in 1997, as well as LockTec GmbH in Weissenbrunn, and took over the Scottish company and most of its employees.
As the original inventor of patented lockers for the delivery of goods, LockTec developed the 'last mile' solution as early as 1997 and has since been electronic locker supplier for post and courier services worldwide. In recent years, the company brought the fully electronic locker system Locksafe to perfection and has also expanded its product range with the innovative cool lockers and Velosafe, a bicycle garage. All products are manufactured within the group of companies using the latest laser, punching and metal-working machinery – quality made in Germany!! This is why LockTec is always a ‘locker bank length’ ahead!
History of LockTec

more than 60 years ago, interior designer Heinz Clausen founded a small joinery company in Kronach (North Bavaria) in 1954. The company carried out interior modifications and shop fitting. With only basic materials and two employees, furnishings and fittings were designed, manufactured and installed locally.
