JMA is a premium brand in the global locksmithing market. Our history has been defined by experience and innovation for 80 years.
JMA was set up in 1942 in Mondragón (Basque Country, Spain), an area with a strong locksmithing industry. What started out as a small metal component polishing workshop grew into a major key manufacturing business in just a few years.
The hard work by its founder, Alejandro Altuna, and his family made JMA grow significantly and become a nationally recognized brand during the 1960s and 1970s. Constant growth in key production naturally led to the international expansion of JMA and the creation of new product lines.
Thus Altuna Group was born, a holding company that sells its products in over 100 countries. The JMA brand has a dozen commercial branches in Europe, America, Africa and Asia, as well as production plants in Europe and America.
JMA currently manufactures more than 2,500,000 keys per day, and it has an extensive catalogue with over 80,000 different items spread over all its product lines:
• Domestic and car keys
• Key and access point control duplicators
• Remote controls for garages doors and gates
• Transponder technology for car key duplication
This extensive catalogue has enabled JMA to position itself as a premium international provider of global security solutions. It is a brand that looks to the future by incorporating the latest technologies into its products while always meeting the needs of the market.
JMACloudPro (the first cloud-based key duplication app), the incorporation of mobile technology into our line of remote controls and the brand’s online catalogue ecosystem are just a few examples of JMA’s firm commitment to innovation.
