San Francisco, Calif., (May 17, 2018) – CONTROLTEK, an emerging leader in retail product protection, has formed a strategic partnership with MTC, one of the leading independent EAS companies in Europe, to expand the reach of product protection solutions of each company.
“In the first phase of our partnership, MTC will begin offering some of CONTROLTEK’s most popular tags to the European market, most notably the FlatGuard™, the world’s first EAS tag for small leather goods,” said Tom Meehan, CONTROLTEK’s Chief Strategy Officer. “In the second phase, CONTROLTEK will make available to the North American retailers some of MTC’s latest products, including customizable RFID solutions, a standalone counting solution, a fitting room warning solution and an employee entrance check system.”
“With this new strategic partnership, we look to expand the reach of our solutions beyond our home market,” said Steve Sell, CONTROLTEK’s Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. “More importantly, we want to make it easier for retailers in both Europe and North America to obtain the very best in product protection, whether the solution was made by us or someone else. In MTC we see a partner that can help us in this mission, someone that can represent us well in Europe and someone that we’ll be proud to represent in the U.S.”
