Distribution agreement for mail scanning systems - first orders


Image Scan, the AIM-listed specialist supplier of X-ray screening systems to the security and industrial inspection markets, is pleased to announce that it has signed a distribution agreement for X-ray mail scanning systems with Todd Research, a leading manufacturer in the market. Furthermore, two orders totaling six systems have now been received.


Under the agreement Image Scan will make use of its well developed and extensive global reach into the security market to find new customers for the Todd Research range of mail and security scanning systems. These systems are widely used to perform X-ray inspection of incoming mail and packages in embassies and other government buildings, as well as company headquarters and industrial facilities. Typical threats that have been encountered through the mail include letter or parcel bombs and powder based attacks. Advance image enhancement tools provide high detection performance against such threats.


Todd Research is a leading company in this market with an installed base of over 600 systems.


In early wins for the new partnership, Image Scan can announce orders from Africa and Asia in the form of six units of the MailScan-M model, the mid-size cabinet scanner, to customers in these important markets.


Bill Mawer, Chairman and CEO of Image Scan, said: "I am delighted to be able to announce this important new agreement. Our sales team and the global network of partners give the Company exceptional reach and this agreement expands the product range that can feed through this extensive route to market."


Derek Gotts, MD of Todd Research said "We are pleased to have completed this agreement which is mutually beneficial and look forward to developing further new sales in a variety of territories as a result of this extended reach capability Image Scan deliver."
