Steve Wakefield (FLA, ALA)

Steve, AKA Mr Clever Clogs Wakefield has spent his entire working life in the security industry, having started work as a Saturday Boy working at a Locksmiths. Over the years, Steve has honed his skills becoming one of the UK’s MOST RESPECTED Master Locksmiths who’s highly regarded within the field.

Having been in the industry for nearly forty years, Steve got into making his own tools where none existed, overcoming challenges along the way. Being a generous, and rather silly ‘chap’, Steve shared his ideas over the years, allowing others to make commercially viable tools with his ideas to help line their own pockets without any recognition.

Approximately five or so years ago Steve decided to team up with his brother Simon, forming the ‘brand’ of UltiM8™ Tools and over the years, they’ve built the brand & company into one of the fastest growing innovative companies of its type. UltiM8™ Tools now boast numerous ‘firsts’ for the industry, over 15 tools & one PATENT to their name & others pending.

Being one of 3 companies in the Brights Group, UltiM8™ Tools are the fastest growing, with an extremely busy product development team headed by Steve.
