About Wairarapa Locksmiths

Based centrally in Carterton, but servicing all of the Wairarapa including Masterton, Carterton, Greytown, Featherson, Martinborough and as far out as Castle Point, Riversdale, Ngawi and Woodville!


Wairarapa Locksmiths, Ltd., was founded in April 1998 by a very skilful locksmith named Glen Morgan. Glen established himself as a reliable locksmith and served the wider Wairarapa Region for the next eighteen years. Unfortunately, a tragic accident in October 2016 claimed his life.

Having recently moved to Carterton, the Stanich family were given the opportunity by New Zealand Locksmith Association to purchase the business and were honoured when their offer was accepted. They are proud to continue offering you a high level of service and quality products at reasonable prices.

Pedja Stanich, the new owner of Wairarapa Locksmiths, is a fully-qualified locksmith and has been in the industry since 2005. He is a member of the New Zealand Locksmithing Association and Master Locksmiths Australasia. Pedja is also a Ministry of Justice approved license holder.

Pedja is dedicated to bringing you all modern security products and services with commitment and integrity.​
