The National Business Crime Solution is thrilled to announce it’s new partnership with Agon Systems, a leading manufacturer of Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) equipment and provider of cutting-edge security solutions to retailers worldwide. This collaboration marks a significant milestone for both organisations in their crime prevention stories.

Innovating Retail Security

It’s becoming increasingly clear that Agon Systems is not just an EAS manufacturer; it’s a pioneer in the field. With a portfolio now boasting over 200,000 high-quality EAS systems installed across some of the world’s most prestigious retail locations, Agon is beginning to set, and exceed, current industry standards.

Their commitment to innovation is evident, dedicating a significant portion of their annual turnover to a Switzerland-based R&D department, allowing them to partner with retailers as an end-to-end loss prevention solution.

The Concept Tag – Their flagship product, the Concept Tag is unique in that it’s practically impossible to defeat. Its unique locking mechanism and patented detacher is proven to reduce shoplifting by 50% or more compared to traditional security tags. Already in use by big name retailers across Europe, the Concept Tag truly is the future of loss prevention.

“Quality, Reliability, Durability – these aren’t just words; they’re the backbone of Agon Systems,” says Sean Welch, Managing Director at Agon Systems. “We’re excited to bring our expertise and innovative products to the NBCS network. Our upcoming participation in the NEC conference will showcase our new Concept Bottle Tag, a hugely impactful product for retailers in the BWS sector.”

The new Concept Bottle Tag product is set to reduce premium alcohol losses by over 50% for retailers and is launching to market in February 2024.

Phil Branton, Membership Development Manager at NBCS:

“We are thrilled to welcome Agon Systems as an NBCS Associate Member. Agon Systems’ commitment to making real, tangible, measurable differences in the fight against retail crime is exactly the type of approach we know our members value.”
