​History

Chubbsafes is the oldest safes brand in the world and a leading international security supplier. Trusted the world over, it has been providing solutions for cash, valuables, data and document protection.

Chubbsafes was founded by Charles and Jeremiah Chubb who opened their first manufactory in Temple Street, Wolverhampton. The Chubb brothers started the company by designing and manufacturing safes and locks for banking and financial institutions.
