Once December rolls around and everyone prepares for the treasures contained in the new year, one can’t help but look back and take stock of the year that was. That’s why this is the time of year magazines start to publish “Best of…” lists: because reflecting on the areas of exception over the past twelve months gives better context for those to come. With what’s been happening in biometrics this year, it’s no surprise that companies like Suprema are making their way on to these lists in security magazines.
A&S International Magazine recently published its list titled “World’s Top 50 Security Companies in 2013.” The list is compiled by assessing companies around the globe who are operating in the areas of access control, video surveillance and intrusion detection, as well as biometrics. Official financial statements are perused, as are the products and technologies of the companies, and the list is compiled and ranked.
Suprema came in at number 40 this year on the list, gaining further distinction for its exceptional growth rate, making it on to the “Top 10 Revenue Growth” list (Suprema’s CAGR since 2007 has been upwards of 35 percent). This is the third year in a row that Suprema has been included on A&S’ top 50, ranking 47 in both 2012 and 2011.
The company has been gaining recognition quite a lot recently as the year has been coming to a close, receiving Korea’s top honour for growing companies just last week. Considering the efforts Suprema has been putting forth internationally, especially through its US operating partner EnterTech Systems, whose flagship solution, BioConnect, serves to break down barriers in the adoption of fingerprint biometrics in physical access control.
Earlier this year Suprema was also named as one of the companies best poised to benefit from the emerging African “frontier markets.”
