History of Liberty Safe
The company Liberty Safe and Security Products, Inc was founded in 1988 by an engineer named Jay Crosby. In the early days, Liberty began operating in three storage units, producing six safes a day. In less than a year, the company moved to Provo, Utah, occupying a 25,000 square foot facility. In 1994, a 45,000 square foot manufacturing facility was constructed in Springville, Utah, which also housed the headquarters. At this point, Liberty Safe had become the best-selling safe company in America. To meet increasing demand, another 18,000 square foot manufacturing facility was opened in Provo, Utah, in 1995.
Jay Crosby sold Liberty Safe to a private-equity investor of Cleveland, Ohio in 1995. In 1997, the company took over National Security Safe Company which was one of Liberty's leading competitors. Liberty started its fourth distribution centre in 1998 in Dallas Texas and the company continued to grow, launching a number of new products into the market. Today, Liberty Safe has a line of 22 different safe models. It has more than 350 dealers across the United States.
