It all started with a bolt

For Kezzler, an accident sparked innovation. In 1989, a fatal plane crash outside of Denmark killed all onboard, the cause: counterfeit bolts which could only bear about 60% of their intended breaking strength.

When the founder of Kezzler Magnar Løken read about this preventable accident, he was determined to find a solution which would ensure that such a tragedy would never happen again. There were already solutions in the market, but he approached the problem from a technological and digital perspective.

The idea that he came up with back in 2002, is still the driving foundation upon which the company is built today.


By placing a unique code on each individual product, it is possible to trace each product back to its origins and to provide proof of authenticity. With a background in cryptology, Magnar came up with a system where it was not necessary to store the code. Creating a very secure and scalable solution that is well suited to high volume products but can also be easily implemented for higher-tier products such as luxury goods.

We are proud of being an innovator in what has now become a global industry


For over 18 years, Kezzler has been championing the commercial advantages of mass unit-level serialization developing ground-breaking patented technologies within the fields of Track & Trace and Aggregation. We are proud of being an innovator in what has now become a global industry. As the company has grown and developed, we have maintained a fundamental belief in the benefits of serialization. When every product has a unique digital Kezzler identity, we can solve real-world problems in a sustainable way.

Let’s solve problems – together

In the push for digitalization of individual products, Kezzler offers flexible, scalable and future proof solutions for unique, secure and traceable identities.

Global partner network

At Kezzler we extend our business reach, technological capabilities and our ability to innovate faster through a strong ecosystem of Partners. We work with both global and regional companies in order to deliver and implement Kezzler projects at various stages of the product lifecycle.

In the push for serialization/digitalization of individual products, Kezzler offers flexible, scalable and future proof solutions for unique, secure and traceable identities. We work with packaging and label providers, supply chain consultancies, inspection and certification companies, system integrators and hardware companies, digital agencies and innovative technology companies in order to deliver maximal value to the customers.

For our Partners, we add unique value when it comes to projects that require the full solution of:

  • getting a secure code onto a product and uploading metadata to the product for downstream consumption
  • aggregating the products in hierarchies and managing these hierarchies with de-/re-aggregations
  • following that product through the supply chain with full track and trace, with options to lock in geographies for illicit distribution
  • engaging the consumer by telling a user story around provenance or managing loyalty programs etc
  • managing all data in the cloud, giving the brand insight into the consumer behavior and the track and trace events of the supply chain.

This goes beyond the fragmented solutions in the market where some competitors offer part-solutions into this full value-chain.
