In 1973, Shin Shyu Enterprise Co, Ltd. was founded under the principle of providing quality product efficiently, whilst lowering costs to customers around the world. From the outset, Shin Shyu has served the lock industry and has earned a solid reputation in manufacturing, product innovation and responsive customer support.
In 1983, Baton Lock & Hardware Co Inc. was established to further serve our Northern and Southern American customers. By creating Baton Lock as a service center and by investing millions of dollars in products and flexible assembly lines, Shin Shyu Enterprise successfully reduced its delivery times from weeks to days.
In 1992, due to the success of Baton Lock (USA), we incorporated the service center of Regia Company (UK). In 1995, the Regia Company was expanded and re-organised as Baton Lock Limited (UK) .
In 1994, the Fu Wang Lock & Hardware Co was formed in Haining, China (130km from Shanghai). The facility was expanded in 2001 to 6,500 SQ meters of manufacturing space. This well trained local team (with an extensive knowledge in locking systems) has further ensured Shin Shyu’s service capability. The company has achieved ISO 9001 Certification for its in-house manufacturing and can outsource quality products at competitive prices.
In 1998, due to an increase in demand for decorative door hardware in the North American market, Baton Security Products Co became a separate division of Baton Lock and Hardware to concentrate on servicing this unique customer group.
Developing and adopting new products to expand our service range has always been one of our most important philosophies. Because of this, Baton’s R&D has now successfully developed a series of European style Mortise lock cases and related hardware.
Through Baton Europe SL, these locks have now passed the DIN 18251 & EN 12209 (along with EN 179 for our Escape Doors and EN 1634 for our Fire Doors). Our 5,000 SQ meter assembling and warehousing facility at Asausa, Spain now serves as the logistic transportation stop for EUROPE, the UK, and AFRICA.
