Mobile biometrics takes hold around the world, resulting in many new customers and contracts, growth in US, Africa and Europe, expansion in R&D and manufacturing.
Spartanburg, South Carolina (USA) – Jan 28, 2020. Integrated Biometrics (IB), the world leader in mobile FBI-certified biometric fingerprint scanners, today revealed that 2019 sales revenue increased by more than 50% over 2018, the third year in a row for such dramatic growth. The company inked significant new contracts in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America, and an important agreement with the US Customs and Border Protection Agency that replaced devices from a major IB competitor at every United States Port of Entry facility. IB was also recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the country, and by the Capital Corporation as one of the Top 25 fastest-growing companies in the State of South Carolina.
Revenue grew significantly in both domestic and international markets, driven by the growing recognition of IB as a mobile biometric innovator and leader. IB’s Five-0 continues to sell rapidly around the globe, remaining the industry’s first and only rugged, mobile FAP50 10-finger scanner that runs for hours off a smartphone and fits into a shirt pocket.
In 2019 IB made important additions to the executive team and doubled manufacturing capacity to address increasing global demand for its products. The company expanded its product offering as well, adding “Danno” – the world’s smallest, lightest FBI-certified FAP-30 scanner. Danno is already being manufactured into several multi-modal mobile biometric enrollment and identification products for markets including border control, voter ID and law enforcement.
2019 was indeed a banner year for us… the latest in a string of years marked by very strong growth. The sales achievements, the awards and the addition of key engineering and manufacturing professionals to our team have helped us achieve these great results. We expect 2020 to be even more exciting. – Stephen Thies, Chief Executive Officer of Integrated Biometrics
