PRESS REVIEW // Châteauroux schools secured with THOOBEE® alert buttons

Châteauroux Metropole equips 33 schools with the ThooBee® anti-attack alert system to secure the schools

SECURITY // Three years ago, we developed and patented wireless alert buttons, the Thoobee® solution, equipped with an electronic card manufactured in Indre and assembled in our workshops.   This technology, created for large stores, has been adapted to the constraints of the school environment in partnership with the city of Châteauroux Metropole. It allows to bring more serenity to the teachers in the equipped classes.

Thoonsen develops its COVID-19 range to secure the staff and the reception of the public

Protect your employees and customers with disinfection terminals, partitions and protective visors

Because our core business is the protection of goods and people, and because Thoonsen is one of the leading SMEs in the Indre department in terms of innovation (source: INPI), it seemed only natural to respond to the specific requests of our customers, as usual. Even more so in this period of health crisis.

Thoonsen can now help you to secure your points of sale and to protect your staff and your customers thanks to contactless disinfection terminals, hydroalcoholic solution dispensers, partition walls and anti-spray liquid and micro-droplet protective visors.

Aménagement de magasin avec le concept BLACKLINE

THOONSEN deploys its BLACKLINE concept for shopfitting

Elegance and modernity with the new Blackline range : anti-theft antennas, walls, partitions, guides, gates


Our new BLACKLINE range of fittings, with its square tubes and black "frosted" effect finish, is designed to be modular, coordinated with our antennas, to blend discreetly into all shop environments and to liven up the commercial areas of small and large sales outlets by adding a touch of modernity. Its careful manufacture makes it highly resistant to impact and time. Gone are the days of chrome-plated guides, welcome to a modern, aesthetic and efficient look!

In keeping with our tradition and our customers, we have developed our range of fittings in collaboration with leaders in the retail sector to best meet their needs.

Thoonsen now has a complete range of products to become the sole provider for your points of sale : anti-theft antennas & accessories, guidance, belt control, gates, walls and partitions, counters and checkouts.

Its expertise and advice enable you to optimise your commercial spaces : securing checkout lines, configuring entrances and exits, gates, fitting out CLS areas, but also overall aesthetics for a harmonious whole are now part of the programme.

Taking care of every detail at the point of sale is one of our priorities.

THOONSEN is coming to BRAZIL

Following our meeting at the NRF show in New York, we created a distribution partnership with Mr. Belloulou, a French security professional and leader in the distribution of anti-theft devices in Brazil with his company Asatec and his Multiteck partners.

Thoonsen's products were presented for the first time in Latin America at the APAS exhibition in São Paulo, a world-class exhibition that is entirely dedicated to the food retail industry with almost 75,000 visitors. On this occasion, our export development manager Greg Laurent travelled to Brazil to support our partners.

Many of Thoonsen's products have been a hit with the Brazilian food retail industry. This is the case with our bestsellers such as the Quick Bottle and the Hyper Tag as well as our new solutions for the food retail industry such as the Croco Tag and the safety collars.

In less than a year, our company has established many partnerships and Thoonsen products are available in about ten Latin American countries.

ControlTek nouveau partenaire aux USA

Our new partner in the UNITED STATES

Following our participation in the NRF Big Show in New York, we have established an important partnership with the American company CONTROLTEK for the distribution of our products in the USA. They will present our products in June at the American "NRF Protect" show, which is dedicated to security in the retail sector.

Here is their recent press release :

"San Francisco, Calif., (May 17, 2018) - CONTROLTEK, an emerging leader in retail product protection, has entered into an agreement with French EAS innovator Thoonsen to bring some of the most popular EAS tags in Europe to the North American market.

“Thoonsen excels in several important EAS segments, such as eyewear protection, padlock-style tags, and solutions for food & drug retailers,” said Tom Meehan, CONTROLTEK’s Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Information Security Officer. “This strategic partnership will enable our customers to have a wider selection of EAS products that have already been proven in the European and other markets, and that can address specific shrink challenges for which there are currently no ideal solutions in the U.S.”

“CONTROLTEK’s focus is to bring to our customers the best in product protection, whether the product is ours or not,” said Rod Diplock, CONTROLTEK’s CEO. “In instances where we notice that another technology company has an exceptionally good solution, we look to partner with them for the benefit of our customers. Through this partnership with Thoonsen, it is our customers that ultimately win, which is how we define a win for ourselves, too.”

According to Diplock and Meehan, the Thoonsen tags will be exhibited at CONTROLTEK’s booth at NRF Protect in June. The product information and photos can be obtained on CONTROLTEK's website.
