New Paxton Technology Centre is a “real statement of intent”, says CEO

Paxton has opened a state-of-the art facility that houses a training suite and its R&D departments.

The developer of IP access control, door entry and building intelligence systems can also use the venue to showcase its latest technologies.

Adjacent to its head office in Brighton, the 29,000-square foot Paxton Technology Centre is “a real statement of intent”, according to Paxton’s CEO Adam Stroud.

The centre will host many of Paxton’s free installer training sessions (although installers can still register for a free training workshop at other locations around the country). The training suite is a fully ‘connected’ space with a hospitality area in which installers can enjoy lunch and complimentary refreshments.

Designed on an open-plan model, the building has been modelled with collaboration and innovation in mind.

Paxton has created a time-lapse video which highlights the construction and transformation of the new Paxton Technology Centre, which you can see below.

CEO Adam Stroud, who featured in our top 10 influencers among security vendors, said: “We are delighted with our new facility and feel it’s a real statement of intent showing the direction the company is moving.  It’s far from an ordinary working space and that’s because Paxton’s growth journey is also far from ordinary.

“For over 30 years, we have aimed for engineering excellence, designing and manufacturing intelligent and innovative security products. The investment we continue to make into product research and development, enables us to continue to drive innovation within the global security market.”

Paxton, which was ranked in the FT’s league table of the fastest-growing companies in Europe, has doubled its turnover every four years.

“The Paxton Technology Centre is so much more than just a new building for Paxton” added Stroud. “It is the physical embodiment of all our hard work, and a symbol of the company’s continued growth and success.

“Our ambition is to be listed as one of the ‘Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For’ and integral to this has been to create a great company culture and a working environment that encourages flexibility, creativity and teamwork and I truly believe we’ve achieved that with our new technology centre.”

Paxton, whose products include Net2 and Paxton10, develops systems for the mid-market (such as education, healthcare, retail, leisure, commercial and public sector) and provides solutions suitable for a wide range of sites and requirements. At present, around 25,000 buildings are secured by Paxton globally each year and the company exports to over 60 countries worldwide.

The nativity of emerging technologies came into existence when the mankind tried to reduce their effort and time consumption while exerting. Therefore technology isn’t handheld devices in our hands or aerial vehicles in the air only; it refers to the cunning of hand which makes us effortless while doing something.
