French RFID hardware supplier Axem Technology expands European market presence
Brexit, threats of protectionism: cause for pessimism? Not at all, according to Axem Technology CEO Philippe Mondon. In 2017, the RFID hardware supplier aims at using this positive energy to expand its presence in Europe and will showcase its product portfolio at its booth at the leading European event for RFID and wireless IoT technologies.
Dedicated RFID hardware supplier from France
Axem Technology is an RFID hardware supplier with the ability to adapt and develop new products to meet increasingly specific market challenges. The company, founded in 2003 and headquartered in the Parisian suburb of Créteil, supplies system integrators with products for industry and supply chain, retail, healthcare, aeronautics, and construction solutions. Today, Axem Technology not only develops products but also controls the entire production management.
European expansion with RFID hardware
As a value added supplier for RFID tags, readers and mobile devices, Axem Technology aims to benefit from the positive political stimuli by expanding its market presence in Europe. Philippe Mondon outlines the priorities: “Axem is currently involved in several large-scale gas industry and military projects in France, as well as industry projects in Western Europe and transport applications in North America. We see a sizeable potential for expansion in Europe.”
Chances for international trade
At the core of the current economic potential: a new era of French-German cooperation. Together, the European Union's two largest economies can ensure that the business environment remains favourable to intra-continental trade.
“Trade within Europe should be stronger in the long term. Political developments are not a problem for people who want to build and trade – whether in France, Germany, the Benelux, or other European countries. Intensified European trade strengthens the need for cross-border IoT solutions in the production industry, logistics, textile retail, and supply chains of various industries.” - Philippe Mondon, CEO, Axem Technology
RFID is a key enabler technology for the IoT
Technology plays a key role in leveraging the positive economic trends. Smart processes and supply chains can unlock sizeable benefits for companies. As an identification technology, RFID is a building block of the IoT. Philippe Mondon highlights the uses of the technology: “RFID is an IoT technology because it is able to capture the data from objects. Numerous customers are looking for ways to reliably and cheaply capture data. They already know how they want to process the data. The challenge is gathering it. This requires bringing previously not-connected objects into the IoT.”
Supply Chain, manufacturing, energy, aeronautics, and more
The technology profile of RFID makes it uniquely suited for various applications, Philippe Mondon explains: “RFID is not restricted to any sector. However, it possesses very precise strengths for industrial applications. Supply chain and manufacturing are growth markets in 2016 and 2017. We are also expanding our activities in energy and aeronautics.” At RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2017, Axem Technology will present products for a variety of applications, such as rugged tablets and readers, high-memory UHF RFID tags with protection class IP68, on-metal tags, as well as specialised RFID transponders for use in concrete.
