20 years of innovation in security and biometrics

Issue 5 2020 News

2020 is the year that marks Suprema’s 20th anniversary. Founded in 2000, the company has built a worldwide sales network in over 140 countries with the number of users of Suprema technologies surpassing 1 billion.

The global provider of security and biometrics boasts an extensive portfolio which includes access control systems, time and attendance solutions, mobile access solutions and fingerprint live scanners. The company has the No.1 market share in biometric access control in EMEA and has been named one of the world’s top 50 security manufacturers.

Suprema has recorded a phenomenal compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20%. At present, the company has more than 40% of its employees engaged in research and development and invests more than 16% of its sales in R&D; each year.

“We would like to give special thanks to all our partners and employees who have made this possible,” the founder and chairman of Suprema, James Lee, said. “Everyone at Suprema is ready to lead our next 20 years.”

Suprema has grown into a corporate group with subsidiaries and affiliates in security and biometrics with the world’s best and exclusive technologies. Since Suprema HQ, a holdings company, earned a place on KOSDAQ in 2008, Suprema Inc. was listed again in 2016. Last year, Suprema ID, which is an affiliate of Suprema, was also listed successfully, and Suprema now plans to broaden its position in the world and gain a foothold in the global market.
