Wilton is a town of contradictions. On the one hand, it is a wealthy, modern town, home to many successful start-ups and Fortune 1000 global corporations such as Deloitte & Touche, Sun Products, Breitling, and the Blue Buffalo Company. AIG, a large financing corporation, was headquartered in Wilton; its trading in credit derivatives essentially bankrupted its parent company, and was considered by many to be responsible for the global financial crisis of 2008–2009.
But on the other hand, Wilton has always been known as a place of tremendous humility and compassion when it placed itself on the map of the infamous Underground Railroad. Vehemently opposed to slavery, when the clandestine, subversive, elusive “railroad” was created, Wilton was a well-known way station for the escaping slaves. Abolitionists found many different ways and means to shepherd the slaves to safety, and Wilton’s history is proud testament to that. Discretion, responsibility, and reliability were a matter of life and death. Participants on either end of the railroad, those being rescued and the rescuers themselves, had to rely on each other and be one hundred percent trustworthy, no questions asked. The success of this endeavor was proven out when 30,000 people escaped to safety over a twenty year period.
Contradictions are an unavoidable fact of life, and can be found in almost any sphere. For example, when the need for locksmith services arise, whether one is moving into a new home, building a new place of business or investing in a valuable vehicle, a customer is looking for the most professional service provider he can find. A locksmith must be trustworthy, discreet, professional and knowledgeable; after all, he is being trusted with the most precious possessions. On the other hand, no matter what security features he installs, he will also know how to dismantle them as well!
While a college degree in not required to qualify as a locksmith (even though certification programs are available now), an apprenticeship is required. The apprenticeships are usually completed either by taking a few specified college courses, on-the-job training, or a combination of both. The apprenticeship is absolutely required, not necessarily to teach the apprentice specific skills, but rather, to ensure that they will abide by the ethical conduct required of all locksmiths, proving to be honest and trustworthy individuals.
At Sure Lock & Key, this is no contradiction at all. All of their employees are vetted, bonded, and fully insured. Their commitment to friendly, professional service, fair pricing, start of the art equipment and technology and around-the-clock availability give customers the best of all worlds.
