FARMINGDALE, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 01/20/10 -- Allied Security Innovations (OTCBB: ADSV) has developed two new products in response to market demands. Allied's wholly owned subsidiary, CGM-AST, brings new technology, CARTON SECURE© and SECURE T.R.A.C. 1.5©, to its growing list of clients to satisfy their need to quickly secure products shipped in cartons. The products identify and provide tamper evidence for packages shipped throughout the supply chain.
According to CEO Anthony Shupin, the use of tamper-evident security tape is becoming more widespread than ever. The market for Carton Secure©, because of its unique design, may alone be worth many millions. Most companies have re-designed their corrugated and cardboard packaging, integrating more recycled materials. Until now, there has been no consistent capability on the market to utilize tamper-evident tapes or labels due to the chemical characteristics and fiber tear of the new packaging. Carton Secure© is specifically designed to provide a full transfer of the hidden message without fiber tear. In all company testing, the new formula has been successful in indicating tamper evidence on every corrugated container.
NEW Secure T.R.A.C. 1.5© incorporates the full transfer technology, but provides a cost effective method for sealing smaller packages, even envelopes, made out of recycled materials. "As companies look to cut costs, this version of our enhanced security tape product line offers a cost-effective solution without compromising their security requirements," stated Mr. Shupin. "Our security tapes and label products require no tools for application, can be customized to provide quick identification of products and whether they have been tampered with or pilfered. It is easily the most cost-effective method for securing cartons and envelopes that we know of," states Anthony Shupin. "We estimate that 35 million pallets are flowing through US Cross Docking and Distribution Centers per year. Depending on carton size and weight, each pallet may contain 10 sealed cartons. The benefits to the manufacturers and shippers from a liability and productivity perspective are immediate. In light of the latest Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) regulations, which require 100% inspection of goods shipped as Air Cargo on commercial aircraft, these products can be instrumental in deterring thieves and terrorists by providing enhanced security and chain of custody."
CGM-AST remains the global leader in Tamper-evident security products. Company officials estimate the new products represent a multi-million dollar opportunity.
