Paxton wins International Business of the Year

Paxton has been named International Business of the Year at the Sussex Business Awards.

The developer of electronic IP access control and video door entry solutions emerged victorious from a record-breaking number of nominations. Fifty-one finalists made the shortlist from 16 towns across the region.

“It’s a fantastic achievement to be recognised among some of the best businesses in Sussex for our continued global presence within the security market,” said Dan Drayton, Paxton’s international sales manager.

“Paxton’s success has largely been due to our commitment to our installers.” Dan Drayton, Paxton international sales manager

“Paxton’s success to date has largely been due to our commitment to our installers who buy and work with our products. Our goal is to provide a consistent world-class experience for our customers wherever they are located around the world.

“We’re incredibly proud of our Sussex roots and the global impact we have had on the security industry over the last 30 years.

Judging panel chair Mike Herd said: “Each year the standard of entries gets better and better and this year was no exception. This year’s finalists are a stimulating mix of established businesses and new entrepreneurial ventures with a common thread running through them all – resilience and determination to succeed. Congratulations to all the winners.”

It’s the latest in a string of accolades in 2018 for the Brighton-based business, which was listed among the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Europe,  named in The Sunday Times 100 best companies to work for and won Company of the Year at the Brighton & Hove Business Awards.

It also triumphed in the access Control hardware category at the Benchmark Magazine Innovation Awards 2018 with its Net2 Entry Premium Monitor. In 2017 it made the Financial Times Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies list.

Paxton recently launched PaxLock Pro, a wireless door entry solution, along with upgraded Net2Air bridge, the connector for the Net2 wireless range.

The company designs, manufactures and exports security systems to more than 60 countries worldwide, including France, Middle East, Scandinavia and South Africa.

Established in Lewes in 1985, it opened a state-of-the art facility comprising a training suite and R&D departments in 2017.
