Categories Access Control  |  Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

Invixium is tapping into the South African market, following a distribution partnership signed with Pyro-Tech Security Suppliers, a supplier of security, surveillance and protection equipment in Johannesburg, announced the two companies in a joint press release. Under the partnership, Pyro-Tech will deliver Invixium’s biometric solutions to resellers across the country.

“South Africa is a veteran and an extremely mature market for biometric solutions and is ready for a fresh, modern, disruptive brand,” said Shiraz Kapadia, CEO and president at Invixium. “Pyro-Tech’s technical knowledge and market experience as a premium distributor of security and surveillance equipment will provide traditional biometric resellers new opportunities by selling Invixium’s modern and rugged biometric solutions.”

Invixium develops IP-enabled biometric solutions that ensure secure access control and convenient time and attendance tracking of employees. The technology is ideal for outdoor use in extreme environments, and a great addition to the African security market, due to the integration of elements such as multispectral imaging fingerprint sensors from Lumidigm on the IXM TITAN, SENSE 2 and TOUCH 2 products, along with highly durable IP65 and IK08 protected exterior, according to the announcement.

“Pyro-Tech is excited to offer Invixium’s innovative range of biometric solutions in South Africa,” said Pyro-Tech Managing Director Joe Ferreira. “Invixium solutions are well suited to our market; a coupling of high-end design and rugged construction while still offering incredible value. We believe that our existing customers will benefit greatly from these award-winning products and look forward to introducing them to our clients throughout the region.”

The Invixium brand will be officially launched during a high-level event in Johannesburg on September 18, 2019.

Earlier this year, the Canadian biometrics solutions manufacturer announced it was to receive up to $1 million in investment from state tech investment agency Connecticut Innovations (CI) to expand its operations in the US, followed by news in July that it received $3.5M in debt financing from CIBC Innovation Banking to support growth.
