About us - CompX Timberline
Timberline Supply was formed in 1981 after market research identified an interesting product niche in locks for wood furniture. At this time, most wood furniture manufacturers were not satisfied with the locks that were available to lock their products. In many cases, the proper locks just did not exist, or had to be purchased in quantities too large to be practical. Furthermore, it was often impossible to lock a desk, file and credenza with the same key.
Timberline developed an alliance with several vendors to manufacture the basic locks that we had identified as having the most appeal. These products were also designed to have more appeal to the U.S. market in terms of finish and style. In addition, Timberline made these locks available in modest quantities (50-500 pieces per order), at a reasonable price, with quick delivery.
The product line and company grew steadily each year, and in 1998 Timberline Lock became one of the CompX International Inc. companies (NYSE American:CIX).
