Rose with CompX AwardRose Umana holds the Bronze Achievement Award, 2012, presented to Anderson Lock by CompX Sales Representative, Dan McGowan, for “Excellence in Distribution.” CompX manufactures the four leading cabinet locks, switch locks and many other highly engineered mechanical and electronic locks for original equipment manufacturers.

Rose, one of Anderson Lock’s Hardware Sales Representatives, says, “National, Fort, Chicago & Timberline locks are what our customers commonly ask us for.  One of my top CompX customers is G & M Metal Fabricators, in Franklin Park, IL.  They purchase, on average, 2,000 to 3,000 of the Chicago R437860390N90TP 5/8” cam locks & R90006212W010J cams per year, for the last 10 years or so.”

Steve Quartullo, Purchasing / Production Manager for G & M Metal Fabricators, says the company puts one of the locks in a hospital electrical control box, and another is used in a tall cabinet created for the telecommunications industry. He adds, “In the 10-plus years we’ve been buying the two different types of locks, we have had excellent delivery and great customer service from you. There are other places we can get these but I’m extremely happy with the way you service our account….if it isn’t broken……..don’t fix it!”

CompX also manufactures 7-pin tumbler “tubular” locks, cam, switch, cabinet, drawer, showcase, and special purpose locks. Rose sells them one at a time, to replace a drawer or mailbox lock, or by the dozen, to hospitals for file and pharmaceutical cabinets, or by the hundreds or thousands, to customers like G & M Metal Fabricators.
