About Sokymat


Pioneering Printing and Card Technologies

Founded in 1964, the Sokymat brand has become a recognized leader in RFID transponder design and production for contactless cards. Patented direct bonding technology enables the mass production of highly reliable, cost-efficient electronic components. And experience in manufacturing and visual identity solutions has resulted in over a billion quality cards in use around the world. Today, we build on that legacy. We are rapidly advancing the capabilities, customization options and user convenience of contactless card systems.

The Sokymat goal is to enhance the security and productivity of event, identity, access, vending and loyalty applications by producing the highest quality, most appealing and reliable credentials in the world that employ the latest in contactless, contact and visual technologies.

ASSA ABLOY acquired Sokymat in 2003. ASSA ABLOYs vision is to be the world-leading innovator and provider of total door opening solutions, offering well-designed, convenient, safe and secure solutions that create added value for our customers.

Sokymat as a brand within ASSA ABLOYs Identification Technologies Group (ITG) assimilated into HID Global in 2006, and the expertise of the former Challenge Card Design (CCD) organization of Germany joined the family through another acquisition. Today, the Sokymat brand is stronger than ever as CCD and card production are merged under a common Sokymat brand umbrella, providing customers with comprehensive credentials solutions, including card components, finished cards and customization services.

In step with the ASSA ABLOY vision, Sokymat components and finished cards open doors for access control and identity programs worldwide, as well as opening doors to improved security, accuracy and productivity for payment, loyalty and ticketing programs. We provide manufacturers and systems integrators with everything from protective overlays, to single-technology prelaminates, to turnkey personalized credentials that integrate multiple RFID technologies and levels of security.

Rely on Sokymat to design and produce the optimal credential solution, opening the door to the potential of your application.
