Invixium and Pyro-Tech partner in South Africa

October 2019 News, Access Control & Identity Management

Invixium, a manufacturer of IP-based biometric solutions and Pyro-Tech Security Suppliers, a supplier of security, surveillance and protection equipment, have announced a new distribution partnership. Under this partnership, Pyro-Tech will now offer Invixium’s full line of biometric solutions to resellers throughout South Africa.

Invixium products provide secure access control and convenient time and attendance tracking of employees. Invixium’s IP-enabled biometric solutions are ideal for the African market due to the incorporation of rugged components like multispectral imaging fingerprint sensors from Lumidigm on the IXM TITAN, SENSE 2 and TOUCH 2 products, along with highly durable, IP65 and IK08 protected exteriors, making them very suitable for deployments in outdoor harsh environments. The TITAN achieves IK10 impact protection.

“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 & president at Invixium. “Pyro-Tech’s technical knowledge and market experience as a distributor of security and surveillance equipment will provide traditional biometric resellers new opportunities by selling Invixium’s rugged biometric solutions.”

“Invixium solutions are well suited to our market; a coupling of high-end design and rugged construction while still offering value. We believe that our existing customers will benefit greatly from these products and look forward to introducing them to our clients throughout the region,” said Joe Ferreira, MD at Pyro-Tech.
