Our Story

A Tradition of Quality

In 1946, our founder, Glenn Halls, started a “little shop that could” in Paramount, California, with little more than a welder, a lathe and a desire to build strong safes. Today, 75 years later, American Security is renowned worldwide as the best provider of security safes and security solutions. With a diverse arsenal of safes, tailored to the unique security needs of our customers, we protect the treasured assets of clients all around the world.
