About Us


The METRIC brand has been synonymous with Parking Industry since the early ‘80s.

Our company heritage dates back over 130 years to the Bell Punch Company which was incorporated in July 1878. The company became the UK’s market leader in the design, manufacture and service of bus, tram and train fare collection systems, supplying London Transport bus and underground departments as well as British Rail.

In October 2016 METRIC was acquired by the Tri Star Group (TSI) which has operations in Europe, North America and Asia, with approximately 2,500 employees worldwide. Since its foundation the TSI Group has developed into a leading global manufacturer of high security UL- and CEN-certified products, many of which are designed by FORMAT Tresorbau. Its product portfolio covers ATM safes, banking safes, commercial safes, and cash handling systems.

FORMAT - The Safe Company (METRIC’s sister company) founded in 1989 in central Germany, is now recognised as one of the leading providers of specialist safes within Europe.

Having joined the TSI family in 2016, Metric Safes is now able to offer a wide range of high quality German engineered products ranging from key cabinets and lockers, through to commercial safes, home safes, fireproof safes, gun safes and hidden safes; all at competitive prices. We aim to regularly monitor our competitors to ensure we offer the best value for money in the market. METRIC has over 40 years of experience in providing customer-focused service and with over 50 qualified engineers located across the country we are always on hand to help.
