THOONSEN exports worldwide
Our participation in several international trade fairs in recent years has enabled us to establish many contacts with distributors from all over the world. We now work with over 30 distributors who sell Thoonsen products in their respective markets.
In total, our anti-theft solutions can be found in more than 20 countries, including 15 in Europe, which we supply from our stock in France. Our direct exports from our factories in China are also increasing, thanks to the creation of partnerships with distributors in strong economies such as the USA, South Africa, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil and Peru.
After proving ourselves on the French market, our locks are now sold on all continents and our exports now represent more than 15% of our turnover. This makes Thoonsen an exporting company with good prospects for international growth.

The THOOBEE® is presented at PERIFEM (20/09/2016)
Our partner for more than 10 years PERIFEM welcomes us today in its premises to allow us to present our new product : the THOOBEE®.
PERIFEM is a recognized interlocutor who puts in contact public authorities, major retailers and suppliers of solutions for stores so that they can exchange on their experiences in the fields of technology, safety and innovation.
The THOOBEE® is a product that fits perfectly into this framework. Validated by an INPI patent, our company developed this new system at the request of Galeries Lafayette who wanted a global solution for securing their stores, without wires and easy to install.
The THOOBEE® allows to manage emergency situations in a store : thefts, incivilities, aggressions... Thanks to a simple button placed at the checkout, the hostess can call the security agent who will be warned by a pre-established message on his pager and will know immediately at which checkout to intervene.
The THOOBEE® improves customer service with the implementation of a sales call button for closed windows and a call button that allows the customer in the fitting room to contact a salesperson without leaving the room for a size change for example.
The THOOBEE® is an innovative product presented exclusively at PERIFEM today !

MOXO® by Thoonsen
In 2016, Jacky Thoonsen, CEO of the company, decided to diversify his activity. This motocross and BMX enthusiast, who was the president of the Moto Club Castelroussin (36) for 10 years, wanted to combine his passion with his professional activity by using the structures and logistics already in place in his company. This is how the MOXO® brand of electric bikes was born.
This diversification allowed us to become experts in electric motors and batteries. When we presented MOXO® products to our customers, they asked us to work on a home delivery solution by bike. The BICYCARGO® project was born.
The MOXO® by Thoonsen brand then established a partnership with the Intermarché shop in Clichy, near Paris, to test the patented prototype of the cargo bike and to perfect it in order to propose a finalized version in the coming weeks.
The current model can already deliver an average of two orders per trip effortlessly thanks to the electric assistance and with great workability, especially on bends, according to feedback from our partners
