The year is finally coming to an end and hopefully we can all breathe a sigh of relief as we ring in the New Year. As most of us know, this year has been challenging for everyone and we all cannot wait for 2021 to shed some positivity to those that need it most. In the spirit of the holidays, we would like to highlight the GOOD that has happened this year, instead of dwelling on the negative. Although it seems like 2020 was the worst year, we want to remind you that great things are still happening in the world. We would like to tell you about the good that has happened for Keyline during this uncertain year. We have had a tremendous year - full of challenges and achievements - and cannot wait to share them with you.
Celebrating 250 Years
The Bianchi family is celebrating its 250th year in business! This reminds us that the Bianchi company is the world’s most long-lived dynasty of locksmiths, beginning in Italy, 1770. The key manufacturing company has been passed down from generation to generation, always staying within the family. There is such a unique and rich history of the Bianchi family and key manufacturing, which all can be found in the Bianchi Museum in Italy. This museum contains the one of the most complete private collections of keys in the world, holding almost two thousand items between keys, padlocks, locks and key cutting machines from all over the world and from several different historic eras, from the 1st century AD to present day. You can visit the key museum housed at the company’s headquarters in Italy or you can book a virtual tour to see all of the amazing key history at www.museodellachiave.com.
NADA Show 2020
NADA, our best and LAST in-person show of the year. With the pandemic hitting in March globally, we (like many others) were unable to join events that are typically popular and drive our partnerships and customer base. In February of 2020, we were able to participate in the last in-person NADA show which allowed us to connect with our customers, demonstrate our products and represent Keyline. This year is going to look a little bit different than 2020’s show. The NADA show is going VIRTUAL and we are so excited to be a part of this new platform! Although we enjoy seeing everyone’s face in Las Vegas during the 3-day show, this will be a new and fun experience and will keep us all safe. Visit us at the show on February 9th -11th at www.NADA.org and ask us a question!
New Keyline Store
This past May, we added a new eCommerce website, the Keyline Store. This store is an additional channel for Keyline to reach new customers and support those that may not have a distributor. We also sell our demo machines on our Keyline Store for anyone that wants a like-new machine for less! We often have sales and discounted products on the store’s website so keep a close eye out. We also have a newsletter that helps keep you up to date on the latest products, demos and promotions. Visit www.keylinestore.com to shop and sign up for our newsletter for current information.
The Keyline Academy – Where customers become experts
Virtual learning is becoming more and more common, especially when it isn’t safe to travel. This past July, we joined the masses and created the Keyline Academy, an online training platform for Keyline customers. These videos give you in-depth knowledge of how to correctly set up a machine and how to run them in their entirety. The videos also teach you different tips and tricks that most people don’t know. A customer can watch one video or complete a course resulting in receiving a Keyline Academy certificate!
