Brighton Technology Company, Paxton Ranks in Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For

Brighton-based global technology company, Paxton, is celebrating being named as one of the UK’s top employers with its 49th placed ranking in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for 2018 list.

The company, who design and manufacture security systems, was also the only Brighton based company that made it onto the prestigious list. 

mploying over 300 people globally, Paxton has its headquarters in the Home Farm Road Business Centre, located just off the Lewes Road in Brighton and manufactures all its products locally at its facility in Eastbourne.

The annual survey, run by the ‘Best Companies’ organisation, recognises organisations and managers who genuinely value and respect their employees.

The ranking was achieved following direct feedback provided by Paxton employees covering 8 key areas of leadership; my manager, my company, personal growth, my team, wellbeing, fair deal and giving something back.

Highlights from the employee survey provided an excellent insight into what it’s like to work at the company:

96% of staff believe they can make a valuable contribution to the success of the company

95% agree the organisation is run on strong values & principles

90% of people feel proud to work for Paxton


This is a wonderful milestone in Paxton’s journey, it embodies our ambition to be world-class in all that we do, from our products and services, to our working environment.
We’ve worked hard to develop a positive company culture and to support our staff on each step of their career with us.


Hard work, focus, investment and a good strategy are essential to the success of the company, but most important by a long way are the people that work for Paxton.
I’d like to thank all the Paxton team, they have been responsible for our success to date, and will continue to determine the extent of our future successes.


We’re striving to be the employer of choice in the area and hope that our appearance on The Sunday Times Best Companies list will enable us to continue to attract the brightest and the best to join us.”


With over 30 years’ experience in the security industry, Paxton is proud of its Sussex roots, having established in Lewes in 1985.
The company moved to its current location on the Home Farm Business Centre just off the Lewes Road in 2004.
