I’d been trying to get together with this amazing company for ages … so Antonis recently invited me to dinner at Magazaki in Kapparis, for a chat and by the end of the meal and interview I realised why Antonis is always so busy, as this company is a lot more than car accessories, key cutting and locksmiths … in fact if it’s got anything to do with all types of keys and locks, for cars and homes, doors for offices, safes and locks and RFID, Radio Frequency Identification card keys for banks and hotels, they’re definitely worth a call …
Car Parts & Keys
Launched by Dad Nicos back in 1979, its my first stop if I need to change a light bulb or windscreen wiper on my car, as they can often just fix it for you on the spot, or they’ll tell you where best to go … in fact, Nicos was one of the first locksmiths in Cyprus and I’ve always trusted them to cut my spare keys, and once was fascinated while I watched him break into my house when I’d locked myself out. Nicos has also helped several of my friends that I’ve recommended there since …
As the main Cyprus distributors of the world famous Epiloglaser, Victoros, use the latest technology to engrave pretty much anything you want, tbh I’ve been shopping here since 1987 and little did I know how much more these guys do behind the scenes …
Antonis explained; “I joined the company in 2003, having finished my studies in Telecommunications and Computer Networking Engineering and then, a little disillusioned with employment options, I visited a Technology exhibition in Hong Kong looking for some innovation. I was overwhelmed by Hong Kong, but nothing took my fancy at the exhibition, but it was there that I was hooked on technology. Returning to Cyprus, next I went to an exhibition in Thessaloniki, Greece and I found this innovative car freshener, so good I wanted one”.
Andonis assured me they only except the best quality if they’re going to have the name ‘Victoros’ on it … Almost in parallel, and always looking for something original, in 2003 Antonis also found new fashionable key blanks, by Errebispa, with their own colourful designs on. As the main Cyprus distributors they have over 120 different designs they now distribute to locksmiths and wholesalers throughout Cyprus … oh, and in 2013 they gained the Cyprus Distribution of Walt Disney Range of colourful keys …
Antonis explained; “my father has been a locksmith for 40 years, of course any good locksmith knows how to break into locks and safes and doors … and I’ve added the technology to the theory and experience, and we can even provide smart key programming, to get you into your immobilized Mercedes … and reset the immobilization code with a new key” … brilliant!
In conversation Antonis explained; that locks and safes are their speciality; supplying an extensive range, from a world leading companies including; Access Control, Smart Lock, Electric Locks, and their services are anything from changing a lock, to key boxes and safes for hotel rooms and offices … they even provide ‘Walk-in’ safes to several national banks and financial institutions, with their range starting from €55 to €30,000 …
With health and safety even more a priority these days Victoros also supply a line of Ironmongery including boasting the main Cyprus Distribution of Spring Loaded ‘Door Closers’ by Dormakaba, They are totally adjustable to suite each door by size and weight.
This company really know their industry, with over 40 years experience and a wealth of knowledge, Antonis knows how to do things that he couldn’t even reveal to me … If it has anything to do with, locks, keys, safes, master key’s, immobilization or the technology that unlocks them and resets them, Victoros holds your answers and provides a service second to none … all you have to do is ask Antonis for a free consultation …
