Prior to founding Controlled Key Systems in 1983, Paul Wojdynski served as Chief Locksmith for Disneyland and Operations Manager for a North OC retail locksmith. Currently, a fleet of nine fully stocked service vehicles allows us to respond to our customers’ needs in a very timely manner.

Paul Wojdynski, founder and President of Controlled Key Systems, Inc. began his security industry career in 1969 at a small locksmith shop in Anaheim.  He continued to grow within the industry, through several locksmith shops, to the position of operations manager for a North Orange County retail locksmith.  He continually attended locksmith association and factory certification classes and seminars that were available through these industry sources.  In 1976, Paul was hired as the Chief Locksmith for Disneyland, and later also serviced other divisions of the Walt Disney Company in the Burbank area.  It was during this period that his knowledge and expertise of master key systems and key control expanded to include the maintenance of extremely large key systems.

Paul was recruited by The Irvine Company late in 1980 to institute and develop an in-house locksmith and key control department that would maintain the numerous properties owned by the largest landowner in Orange County.  His expertise in key systems led to the tight controls still in use by The Irvine Company today.

It was during this period, while employed by The Irvine Company, that access control began to become more popular with larger companies that had many employees.  Once again, through industry and trade classes and seminars, Paul began to study and work with access control systems. The new office buildings and parking areas needed unattended control and card access systems were installed.  The Key Control department oversaw several of these systems.  Controlled Key Systems,Inc. still counts The Irvine Company as one of its largest clients.

When Controlled Key Systems was started, it was our goal to include access control and surveillance camera systems as part of its product offering.  That portion of the business continues to grow as more facility and property managers realize the simplicity and low cost of operation of an access control system.  It became clear that the best way to service our customers was to specialize in a system that offered all of the options our customers would need and ensure that our technicians were solidly versed in those systems.  Hirsch Electronics’ access systems were chosen to be, and still are, the primary access control product line of Controlled Key Systems, Inc., and over the years we have continued to sell and service Hirsch systems.

The next time you need superior locksmith, access control, and/or surveillance camera service, just call us at Controlled Key Systems, Inc. and let us help you. Thank you from everyone at Controlled Key Systems, Inc., we look forward to working with you.
