Thirard is a family business founded in 1920 in Picardy by Fernand Thirard. After decades of specialising in the manufacture of padlocks, the company underwent a steady development marked by three major stages:
• from 1965, the manufacture of high quality brass padlocks is put into operation.
• in 1975, product diversification is realised by manufacturing the first Security night latch models.
• in 1985, Thirard produces its first lock.

Since that time many products have been launched, including: night latches and high security multipoint mortise locks under the A2P mark, NF labelled locks, patented high security profile cylinder locks (reproduction prohibited), door accessories and fittings have also been introduced into the market.

Thirard now offers a full range of products in terms of door security, which enables it to be a prominent player among the most influential in the market. It is a leader in Large-Scale Distribution, while being very active in Construction, Industrials, Luxury, and Export.
