La empresa Thoonsen
The company Thoonsen has been manufacturing shoplifting and shop fitting solutions for more than 12 years. Its founder Jacky Thoonsen has 25 years of experience in the EAS industry (Electronic Article Surveillance). His willingness to find new solutions encouraged him to innovate. The Quick collection is finally ready after a 4-year R&D process. It is a set of efficient and innovative shoplifiting solutions that generates 82% of the company’s revenues. Thoonsen decided to diversify its activity in 2016 with the development of a new range of shop fitting solutions and the THOOBEE device, which is a global security solution for retailers.
As of today, Thoonsen is listed by several French retailers that are also present abroad : Carrefour, Casino, Leclerc, Auchan, Décathlon, Sport 2000, Bricorama, Leroy Merlin. We have been collaborating with the same manufacturer for more than 10 years so that we are able to have an essential quality control. Thoonsen marks its commitment to internationalisation because it has validated 5 patents in France, 33 in Europe, plus 1 in China, the USA, Russia, and South Africa.
For more than 12 years now, Thoonsen has been working with the same manufacturers. We have 4 partners, each one dealing with a specific range of products : antennas, accessories, labels, and safer boxes. We have built a serious and trustworthy relationship together.
These collaborations enable Thoonsen to garantee a steady quality, as well as the continuity of our product ranges, so that we are able to ensure resupplying. The lasting relationship between the different collaborators gives Thoonsen an international dimension while providing us with an overall solution regarding the innovation process and the manufacturing of the products.
Every product is tested during the development process in order to guarantee flawless quality. Moreover, the partnership with our Chinese manufacturer enables Thoonsen to answer customers’ needs because our associate can create made to measure products.
