Who We Are

Owner Robert Gaither has just moved to Knoxville, Tennessee in 2023. Raised in Selma, California by first-generation business owners, Robert understands that serving the needs of others and being truthful about his abilities comes first. Robert has an extensive mechanical background in various industries, but the one occupation he truly learned from was from business to business sales (13 years). He understands that communication is key to any form of successfully resolving a client’s problem and still applies that core principle. In December of 2017, Robert relocated to Salt Lake City due to accepting a full-time job as an Institutional Locksmith, and for the training opportunities that are readily available in Salt Lake City.

Then, in 2018, Robert relocated back to Knoxville, Tennessee. If Robert asks you several questions about your locks issues when you call him, don’t be offended, he is just gathering facts and is deciding the appropriate service you will need to resolve your issue and to give you a firm price on the phone. Robert started Gaither Locksmithing to serve his hometown area and will happily assist any and all customers in Knoxville and the surrounding areas.
