The love of a woman landed Marc Rosenthal in the Snoqualmie Valley a few years ago. Together with that love, Ellen Torchia, Marc launched Replicator Graphics (formerly Alpine Trophy and Sign) and the couple currently runs the business from their North Bend home.
What you probably don’t know about Marc is that he has 25 years of locksmith experience in the security world. Twenty five years ago that career began in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida as an apprentice making $6 per hour. In 1991 he moved to Seattle and began 15 years of service with large lock and safe companies – until his switch to the graphics world in North Bend.
When the economy hit its downturn in 2008, Replicator Graphics moved out of its retail space on North Bend Way and became a home-based business. Replicator Graphics is still in operation and considering a move back to retails space.
Marc made his way back to the security world this year to supplement his income during a business slow period. Marc says this past year of working for a big security company showed him that he was ready to bite the bullet and start his own locksmith company here in the Snoqualmie Valley.
And he did just that. Valley Locksmith opened this past month. It is a mobile based lock company catering to Valley residents in North Bend, Snoqualmie, Fall City, Duvall and Carnation.
Marc says, “We offer commercial and residential locksmith services at reasonable rates while providing professional and reliable service. We are licensed, bonded and insured so you can trust and depend on our company.”
Current Valley Locksmith is not offering automotive services, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be an option in the future. For now, as the business is getting off the ground, Marc wants to devote his skills to the core areas, which are commercial and residential service.
Good Luck, Marc!
