Retail Security Company Expanding to Increase Supply and Service Capability

Fort Lauderdale, FL – February 18, 2008 – TAG Company, a leading provider of anti-shoplifting solutions announces the opening of a sales, service, and project management office in Bentonville, Arkansas. The Fort Lauderdale-based company is extending its North America presence to better serve its customers and will employ account management, field service, and installation personnel at this location. The company also has operations in the United Kingdom and Singapore.

TAG Company is a provider of Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) systems and supplies, competing with Sensormatic Electronics (a division of Tyco, NYSE:TYC) and Checkpoint Systems (NYSE: CKP). The company sells, installs and services exit and point-of-sale systems, accessories, tags, and labels utilizing either Swept-RF or Acousto-Magnetic technology, which are the two leading industry platforms. TAG has installed three of the largest chain-wide EAS rollouts in the global marketplace in the last three years.

“TAG has become well established as a leading provider of EAS technology in the UK, delivering our products to premier retailers like HMV, Virgin Megastores, WAL-MART-owned ASDA, Morrisons, and Sainsbury’s,” stated Joe Ryan, Sr. Vice President of Sales & Marketing – TAG North America.  “In the last year, we’ve focused on gaining the trust and confidence of North American retailers that we can deliver the same outstanding solutions, service, and support here. The response has been very positive and we now see that large EAS-using retailers in the US and Canada are ready for a quality alternative for their EAS supply.”

Kathie Bulson, TAG’s Sr. Vice President, Development & Services, “TAG is the first company in this market to establish a true systems integration approach to retail security.  Until now, the major competitors have pushed their proprietary technologies, plainly ignoring the needs of clients by foregoing standards or interoperability.  TAG has embraced a sound philosophy of identifying and integrating the best security solution available, at the best possible value.”
