BemroseBooth Paragon (BBP), the supplier of magnetic tickets and smart applications for the mass transit sector, is celebrating after winning the Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards turnaround category.


The company, which supplies more than 1billion magnetic tickets to the mass transit sector, explained in the entry how it has invested significantly in the infrastructure to allow it to manufacture smart and more technologically advanced applications knowing that the market was changing.


Securing a £14million account from Rail Delivery Group (RDG) is just one of the notable achievements the group has made as a result of having the foresight to become a transition partner; supporting the shift from traditional magnetic ticketing to smart cards for the company’s largest clients.


General Manager for BemroseBooth Paragon, Andrew Jones comments: “This award means a great deal to us here at BBP. We have gone through some challenging times but had the foresight to plan for change and to invest in the future. We hope that our progressive approach will continue to pay dividends and that we will achieve our target, which is to be the biggest supplier of smart enabled applications in the country – for mass transit and wider market sectors.”


BemroseBooth Paragon is a fully owned subsidiary of Paragon ID and leading supplier of both traditional magnetic, thermal and barcode tickets for the transportation sector. It also provides a variety of smart products and services including RFID tags, smart cards and tickets, contact and contactless cards.


Responsible for the supply of almost 1bn magnetic stripe tickets for UK train operating companies, BBP acquired Burall InfoSmart in June. This strategic acquisition supported the business as it launched ITSO approved smart products and services into the sector, assisting the UK train operators to make a smooth transition from traditional to smart ticketing, as well as expanding the offering into the broader transportation sector.
