Reviving the brand - Medeco took over management of Arrow Lock Company in 2006. The position of Brand Manager was created to restructure Arrows primary channel and rebuild the reputation of the brand. Within 12 months we turned around the brand and showed positive growth over prior year.


An aggressive ad campaign began in 01.07 focused on engaging the locksmith loyalty toward Arrow. A variety of high profile cover advertisements were run offering FREE items such as: Leads, Try Me Products Websites and Promotional Materials. For dealers to receive these items all that was required was online registration.

Within 12 months Arrow had generated a lead list of 10% of the target market and now had a direct channel of communication, even in an indirect business model. As of 11.10 this lead list continues to grow and is currently at 18% of the target market.


Based on a variety of legacy products, a new product matrix was established in 7.07. The goal of the matrix was to create a good, better, best lineup for the products; while also providing a visual product roadmap of areas ready for expansion.

It was a combination of these activities that helped establish a place for Arrow within our new target market, the locksmith channel.
