Paragon ID’s secure contactless technologies offer the ideal compromise between speed and security across a wide range of applications – including individuals and their identification documents, secure payments, the need for effective traceability, and connectivity of objects (internet of things).

The company aims to support its customers – cities, governments and major brands – so they can benefit from the opportunities offered by the “contactless revolution”.

Paragon ID employs more than 600 staff, with manufacturing sites close to its global customers. The company is also increasing its R & D investments and reinforcing its European teams.

With years of experience and technology expertise in this promising market, Paragon ID intends to continue its growth, both organic and through acquisitions. The company has set itself the goal of achieving by 2021 a turnover of €250M and an EBITDA margin above 10%.
