Company Description

Spun out from the British Government's Rutherford Appleton Labs in 2002, Thruvision Group is an AIM-quoted technology company that develops, manufactures and sells people-security-screening technology. Thruvision has developed a range of exceptional cameras that register minute differences in body heat, and the technology can detect relatively small objects hidden under an individual's clothing. Based in the UK, Thruvision sells its products globally, focusing on three main sectors, Aviation, Customs and Profit Protection, where it is finding significant opportunities to grow its presence, while Mass Transit and Event/Location Entrance protection markets could be developed in future. A key feature of Thruvision's technology is that it operates at a physically distant range of several metres and completely removes the need for physical searches.

Investment Summary

Thruvision's technology is differentiated from competing security screening technologies by operating at a safe distance and detecting non-metallic as well as metallic items. COVID-19-related restrictions on close proximity 'pat-downs' (required to resolve alarms from walk-through metal detectors and airport body scanners) increased interest in Thruvision's screening solutions, although the Aviation sector was particularly affected by lockdown travel restrictions. Thruvision has started to expand and tailor its product range and appears well-positioned to address the growing need to safely, quickly and comprehensively security screen individuals for weapons, contraband or other illicit items. Sales contracts are often high value with irregular timing, leading to uneven sales growth, but medium-term prospects seem promising, and the group has demonstrated good cost control while maintaining a strong balance sheet.
