History & Mission
At Capitol Industries, we consider core values to be at the heart of all our business relationships and we are fully committed to upholding their ideals in all aspects of our company.
From humble beginnings, Aaron Fish began his career selling keys and security hardware at the age of 17, doing his rounds on a bicycle. A natural entrepreneur and innovator, he invented and developed the still widely popular push button lock. In order to survive, he took his company public and bought Capitol Industries, a die-casting factory.
From there he went on to build a successful global company called Unican Security Systems. Unican, later llco-Unican, was purchased by Swiss security giant Kaba in 2001 (now known as dormakaba).
In 2007, Mr. Fish bought back control of Capitol Industries to preserve its expertise, to preserve the jobs of long-time, loyal employees, and to bring the company back to family ownership, as well as to profitability. Under proven long-standing leadership and new family additions, Capitol Industries is going back to its roots as a security product developer, innovating new product lines and paving its road to renewed success.
