Eurocontrol's Xenemetrix Receives SICPA Order
Approx. US$250,000 Order in Support of Fuel Marking Project
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 31, 2017) - Eurocontrol Technics Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EUO)(OTCQB:EUCTF) ("Eurocontrol" or the "Company"), a Canadian public company specializing in the acquisition, development and commercialization of innovative test and measurement technologies for industry with application systems focused on the energy security, semiconductor and precision agriculture sectors, announces that its wholly-owned subsidiary Xenemetrix Ltd. ("Xenemetrix") has received an order for six ED-XRF Petromark™ analyzer units for revenue of approximately US$250,000 from SICPA.
The order of units is in support of a three year contract renewal that was awarded after a tender process. The renewal provides evidence that the Petromark™ marking solution is continuing to address and discourage fuel adulteration providing increased oil revenues. The Petromark™ fuel marking system functions as an "in-product tax stamp" that cannot be removed, altered or copied. The detection technology supplied by Xenemetrix is highly accurate and exploits advanced ED-XRF spectrometry techniques providing the sophisticated tool available to eliminate fraud in the oil sector. Xenemetrix has an exclusive long-term supply, maintenance and support agreement with SICPA to supply ED-XRF spectrometry equipment and services related to the oil and gas marking and monitoring field.
Bruce Rowlands, Chairman and CEO stated, "We are pleased to receive this initial order and continue our support of SICPA and we look forward to additional equipment orders and in the case of new contracts, additional earn-out revenue as their efforts since acquiring our former fuel marking subsidiary come to fruition."
