Our Company

Founder Larry Stewart, having established Martin Locksmith and Door Closer Company of Toledo, Ohio, in 1964, moved South to the Columbus area in 1977.  Larry lived and taught the principles of service, being a sterling example of a servant himself.  Larry took upon himself any task a business owner, a home owner, or building manager gave him and performed it with excellence.  Larry took his responsibilities seriously, never shirking a duty, and always watching out for the interests of his clients, on and off “the clock”.  These were the principles of business he handed down to his 1981 apprentice, now President of the Corporation, David Wiant.  David teaches Larry’s philosophy of service to every employee that enters the doors of Stewarts, knowing that service is needed, and good service is rare.

During the early to mid 1980’s, the science of locksmithing saw the emergence of electronic control of locks.  These early systems piggy-backed on building HVAC systems and intrusion detection systems.  When video tape recording systems became more affordable, Stewart Security began to use these, too, integrating them with the before separate sciences of locksmithing and intrusion detection.

Every year that passes sees a new or emerging technology affect the security business; and Stewart Security is always finding ways to use new technology to enhance the protection of its clients.

Larry has stepped away from the business of business, but remains a vital part of Stewart’s vision and sales.

There are few industries in which the character of the company with which you partner matters as much as within the security industry.  At Stewart's Security, all that we do is driven by a very deeply held core set of values -- the same values we have embraced since our beginning:


"Stewart's Security Service conducts all of its business and manages all of its relationships in a manner that embodies integrity, professionalism and honor.  We believe that our successes are built on trust and respect for our customers.  And, we believe that commitments to the satisfaction of our customers, product quality, and technical expertise are both our heritage and the elements that are key to our success in the future."


This is what we believe, and why we are who we are.

In 2017, Stewart Security posted its best year since its founding, and has built a strength and momentum that will lead to new high levels of service and excellence.
