New EAS Tags, Dual Technology EAS/RFID System, and Cash Security Solutions to be Showcased by CONTROLTEK at NRF Protect

HAYWARD, Calif., (Jun 22, 2017)CONTROLTEK, an emerging leader in retail product protection, will debut a suite of new retail security solutions next week at the NRF Protect conference in Washington, DC.  The new solutions will include new EAS tags, a new system and tamper-evident cash packaging.

“In my six or so weeks with the company I’ve been impressed with the speed that CONTROLTEK is able to bring a new product to market,” said Tom Meehan, CONTROLTEK’s Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Information Security Officer.  “At NRF we will debut a brand new EAS tag for small leather goods, which is a segment of retail that’s been ignored by solutions providers for too long.  At the same time, we will unveil several reimagined tags that now incorporate dual technology – either AM and RFID or RF and RFID.  Our aim is to help LP teams get ahead of the curve by enabling them to start phasing in RFID in a cost-effective manner so that they are better prepared for the future.”

“On the systems side, we are thrilled to be showcasing a new dual-technology system from our friends and partners at Nedap,” said Steve Sell, CONTROLTEK’s Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing.  “The iSense Lumen is perhaps the most advanced system on the market, boasting an impressive analytics suite with the capability to detect both RF and RFID tags and labels.”  Sell also said that CONTROLTEK has deployed over 1,800 EAS systems so far this year, crediting a great partnership with Nedap for much of the success.  “Adding iSense Lumen to our arsenal of LP solutions is exciting, and we can’t wait to demonstrate its capabilities at our booth at NRF Protect,” he added.

“At CONTROLTEK we take pride in offering solutions that protect, and having people that deliver,” said Rod Diplock, CONTROLTEK’s CEO.  “When it comes to cash protection, our tamper-evident packaging is relied on by major banks and government entities, and over $1 trillion in cash is transported in it every year.  Our product protection solutions, which encompass EAS and RFID tags, labels and systems, are relied on by some of the top retailers in the world.  And bringing all these solutions to the world are our people, who over the past 41 years have made CONTROLTEK one of the most trusted names in banking and retail asset protection.  I am really looking forward to this year’s NRF Protect conference where the LP professionals from around the country will get a chance to meet our people in person and test our solutions firsthand.”

CONTROLTEK will exhibit its solutions at booth 129 at NRF Protect, from June 27 to June 28, at the Gaylord National Harbor in Washington, DC.
