primion Technology AG – competence in security solutions since 20 years
primion Technology AG, the specialist company for integrated solutions in Security Technology, Access control and Time recording was established back in 1995. Today as the primion group, the company is an internationally operating group of companies, with around 400 staff, regional offices across Germany, subsidiaries in France, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands and a widespread international network of System Integration Partners.
Milestones in the company's history were the iF Design Award for terminals and readers from the Crystal Line range and winning the prize for "Innovation Product 2008" with readers from the same series. primion was one of the first companies from the industry to develop a fully web-based solution for managing Time recording and Access control.
The strategy of internationalisation started just four years after the company was founded with the conversion to a Joint Stock company. The first subsidiary was established in France. Many large companies who were amongst the early adopters of the primion solution are still customers today. Twenty of Germany's Top 100 listed companies are on the primion customer list.
As the company moved into the 21st century, further large projects followed, for example Toll Collect, whose motorway toll-gathering installations across the German motorway network are secured and monitored through a primion system. New, intelligent biometric and mechatronic systems and applications were developed and successfully launched onto the market.
2005 and 2006 stand out as a period of acquisition and wide-reaching changes. Large orders from well known companies from the chemical and pharmaceutical industries underpinned the primion business model. This was followed by a large order for the Finance Tower project in Brussels. primion continues to be successful on the domestic market with large projects at the Free Universality of Berlin and the Hamburg-Eppendorf University Hospital.
Further large projects followed, including one from Fraport, the operating company for Frankfurt Airport. This is one of the largest projects in the industry and as well as covering Access control, the system also encompasses the installation of a Gate management application especially tailored for the airport and systems for Time recording and Credential management.
Following the launch of the psm2200 Security command centre, primion was able to win Telenor as a customer, one of the biggest players in the telecommunications market with companies in 13 countries around the world. Access control and Security systems have already been installed in four countries, India, Serbia, Montenegro and Bulgaria, across the company's many locations. Further orders are expected to follow.
The showcasing of new, innovative and intelligent products at the Security 2014 trade fair represents the latest highpoint in the company's history. The intelligent Visitor administration application prime Visit, the innovative ADT 1200 terminal, a new mechatronic escutcheon reader and a new access control panel underpinned the reputation of primion Technology AG as one of the most respected market leaders in Europe.
The introduction of a new group logo further demonstrated this claim in a striking way. The company is looking forward to the future with optimism as it continues to focus on the strengths and synergies to be found within the group; in France through primion SAS, in Spain through primion Digitek and in Belgium and the Netherlands through primion GET. The course has been set for many more successful years. The solutions from the primion group will significantly influence the way the market for Security solutions, Access control and Time recording develops over the years to come.
