New strategic partnership will facilitate growth and market penetration for both company’s products and services throughout the world.
Parabit Systems, Inc. and Longheadland Limited, are pleased to announce they have entered into a global strategic partnership, combining Parabit’s deep-seated presence in North America, with Longheadland’s vast network in the European and Middle East markets.
Parabit Systems is a leading provider of innovative security (e.g., access control equipment) and self- service (e.g., charging stations, wayfinding kiosks) hardware and software solutions. The Company’s operations are vertically integrated from design, engineering, and manufacturing to integrating and servicing. Parabit is an essential product/service provider supporting the banking, healthcare, government and transportation sectors. Parabit serves five out of the top 10 banks in the world – including 24 of the top 30 U.S. financial institutions – and provides solutions for 30+ airports across the U.S., improving airport safety and security, enhancing passenger experience, and improving operational efficiency.
Longheadland Limited is under the leadership of Paul Whelan, who has 40 years of C-suite experience across several airlines, airports, and aviation related service companies. The Longheadland team has developed a highly successful airport lounge model, which has led to rave customer reviews and lucrative revenue streams. Strengthened by the relationship with Parabit, Longheadland will bring this premier lounge model into the North American airport market. In addition to the airside and landside lounge models, Longheadland will support the dynamic airport landscape with a line of concierge services, meeting rooms, service offices, and airside hotel rooms.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the Longheadland team. Beyond the collaborative alignment, Paul’s leadership, and commitment to innovation dovetails well with our core beliefs.” explained Rob Leiponis, President and CEO of Parabit. “As airports continue to elevate customer experience, the North American market will benefit from the expertise and success the Longheadland model has achieved across some of the world’s most acclaimed airports.”
“As leaders in the aviation space for over 40 years we’ve evolved in many ways, but we are uniquely poised for unprecedented growth,” stated Paul Whelan, CEO for Longheadland. “One of the key strengths of the industry is the culture of collaboration – with trusted, like-minded partners we can help shape change. Rob and his team complement our spirit of innovation. They will strengthen our deliverables with key health and safety features and bring tremendous value to our network of relationships in EMEA.”
As the aviation industry drives recovery toward the post-Covid landscape, Parabit and Longheadland are poised to deliver solutions that will support critical airport initiatives to bolster health and safety and support adaptive design, while keeping the customer experience paramount.
Beyond aviation, both Parabit and Longheadland will leverage synergies to expand Parabit’s presence in the Banking and Railway markets throughout Europe and the Middle East.
