Dr. Eric Granstrom is honored to serve Greater Minneapolis with The Flying Locksmiths.

As the 3rd of 4 generations of Granstrom family to call the Twin Cities home, he is excited to serve customers – individually, dutifully, and with uncompromised quality.

After a breadth of schooling, including a Ph.D. and M.B.A., he’s been fortunate enough to lead diverse teams to interesting accomplishments, including authoring over fifteen U.S. patents in computer hardware technology, helping grow artificial human tissues for possible re-implant, building international nanotech companies, manufacturing new medical imaging technologies, launching chiropractic software systems, developing advanced 3D laser imaging systems, and co-coaching an elementary school robotics team to a national tournament.

What has Dr. Granstrom energized to help change the world now, though, is the ability to bring that breadth of skills and experiences to bear on optimizing the customer experience in a very traditional trade – locksmithing.
Nothing motivates him more than the opportunity to personally help — to solve individuals’ problems quickly, professionally, and efficiently – and his mission is to offer unrivaled service to this community that has been such a nourishing cradle for his multigenerational family here.

Dr. Granstrom has earned trust with a litany of others, including open heart surgeons and the nation’s leading defense institutions, he’s confident his team at The Flying Locksmiths – Minneapolis will win yours.

Our Customers Say it Best

The Flying Locksmiths was amazing! Very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Work was done in a timely manner. He was also able to come up with solutions to unforeseen bumps in the road.

Great service. We had a lock seize up in the locked position in the middle of the day at my men's hair salon. We called the Flying Locksmiths, they responded and had the lock fixed within an hour which kept us operating virtually without interruption. In my experience they are prompt, professional and courteous. I'd highly recommend them.

Eric at Flying Locksmith was very fair with his time and level of patience with me on a consult I requested to determine the best solution for my needs at a remote location, and I really appreciated it. Thank you.

I am trying this company for an apartment complex I manage. We have been having some issues with the building locks recently and I wanted replacement cylinders and latch covers. They have been very helpful and knowledgeable. I would recommend them.

I needed help with installing automated door locks for my loft. Both doors are commercial grade and most locksmiths weren’t willing to discuss it, as the industry seems to be dominated by old school/low tech. Night and day difference once I connected with Eric and his team. More than a dozen meticulously-bulleted emails laying out my options, prompt answers to all my overly-granular questions, an ability to weigh in on the highly technical aspects of the project, a final install that met functionality/cost targets perfectly, and excellent support afterward. I’m now the proud owner of fully automatic door locks which I’ve networked into my home automation system, allowing for presence sensing, key fob activation, and temporary access control. I can even unlock either door from anywhere in the world via cell phone. Geek heaven - thanks guys!
