Where it all began
The founding shareholders originally worked together in the electronic measurement industry and, having a strong entrepreneurial spirit, saw the opportunity to venture into their own business. In March 1987 this became a reality with the birth of Impro Technologies.
A key strength of the business was the expertise of the founders in both engineering and sales. This was to prove invaluable when they saw an opportunity to use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) in a new application – that of access control.
Impro became one of the first companies in the world to adopt RFID and quickly became pioneers in the technology. This resulted in the business developing innovative new products that revolutionized the access control industry, and achieved tremendous growth for the group.
Today, the business employs some 150 full-time employees and has grown to become a multi-million Rand enterprise with offices in America, Africa and Europe.
Global player, local PARTNER
Impro today exports products to over 60 countries, spanning four continents.
Whilst the company is a global player in the access control industry, through an extensive network of distributors and dealers, the company is also a local partner. This established network of companies has been built up over many years and provides customers with peace-of-mind support and local knowledge and expertise.
