Ron Jewell, Owner of Southern Safe & Lock

I started locksmithing in 1991 and opened my first locksmith business in1996 called All Secure Lock and Key. In 2000 I decided to specialize in safes and vaults and I changed the business name to Southern Safe and Vault.

I’ve been a SAVTA (Safe and Vault Technicians Association) instructor for many years, and in 2006 I became VP of SAVTA, and then won the SAVTA Hall of Fame award in 2008.

In 2013 I shut down Southern Safe and Vault and went to work for Diebold as a technician. In 2018 I left Diebold and started Southern Safe and Lock, LLC.

Now I enjoy serving clients in the Mobile, AL region with all their locksmithing needs. We are a mobile-only service, so call us today and we’ll come to you!
