Our History

Founded in 1967 by Harvey L. Henkel and Robert "Red" Deluse, Hamilton Security has become one of the largest manufacturers of physical security products, pneumatic tube systems, and audio/video systems in the United States. Located just outside Cincinnati, Ohio, Hamilton Security built a new state-of-the-art $20 million headquarters in Milford, Ohio. 

Our products, combined with old-world craftsmanship, are made proudly by our factories' associates, allowing our teams to produce the most reliable equipment in the marketplace. Simplicity has been the essence of our product design for over 50 years. We pride ourselves on providing custom solutions for our customers.   

Hamilton Security products are sold through our networks of authorized Channel Partners. Our network covers all 50 continental United States and 75 channel partners in over 200 cities, including international sales. Our channel partners are local security professionals, bankers, and independent business owners with their homes, hearts, and businesses invested in their respective communities.

In 2012, The Gunnebo Group acquired Hamilton Security and added it to their collection of Brands, including Gunnebo and Chubbsafes.
