History

In 2011, development started on a better, more secure design of security tag than those that existed on the market.

What followed was an extensive testing period in partnership with a major global athleisure retailer – one that saw average stock losses through theft reduced by as much as 75 per cent.

From the start it became clear that this was a garment tagging device that was clearly more secure that anything that’s come before and is the most exciting advance in EAS tagging for over 30 years.

In 2015, four years after development started and with a number of revisions over time that made it even more effective, the Concept Tag was officially launched.

Since then, the Concept Tag has been recognised as an award-winning, industry-leading product and has found a home with some of the biggest high-street names, including John Lewis, River Island, JD Sports and Matalan.

As well as success in the UK, we’ve sent tens of millions of tags across the globe to help retailers protect their stock and increase their bottom line. The Concept Tag has a home in over 20 countries, including the USA, Australia, Russia, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, France and Spain.
