Accesio is a division of Action Security Locksmiths—family-owned and operated and proudly serving Edmonton and area since 1976.
We are truly family. Action Security Locksmiths founder, Herbert McKinnon, sold the company to his sons, Doug and Gord McKinnon, in 1988. They continue to run the company today. Herbert’s granddaughter, Haley McKinnon, is also a part of the Accesio team. Together with our extended Action and Accesio teams, we provide exceptional services and products to our clients.
The Accesio team is diverse, with experience in lock hardware and security, sales, customer service and project management. Our personalities mold us into a team where the sum is worth more than individual parts. Together, we work behind the scenes to make your experience with access control solutions as smooth as possible.
Mike is our fearless leader. He comes from a project management and electrical background with substantial experience in commercial and industrial facility maintenance. He is a strong communicator and loves to connect and share experiences. Mike is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys camping.
Ted is our courageous sales manager. He comes from a solid sales background of 38 years, with the past 16 years in the lock and security industry. He has 15 years experience as the manufacturer’s representative for Abloy Canada. Ted is now managing the sales teams for both Accesio and Action Security Locksmiths. Ted enjoys camping, golfing, and fishing—anything to be outdoors. He is also a huge Edmonton Oilers fan.
Haley grew up in the lock and security industry, cutting her very first key at 17 years old. Her grandpa first opened Action Security Locksmiths in 1976, with her dad and uncle purchasing the business and running it since 1998. She is excited to be joining the family business with Accesio. Haley enjoys curling up with a good book, cuddling with her cat and going on adventures with her husband.
