CORTE MADERA, Calif., Jun 21, 2006 (PRIMEZONE via COMTEX News Network) --
Smart-tek Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB:STTK) and its subsidiary, Smart-tek Communications, Inc. announced today that it is in initial stages to introduce its RTAC-PM poultry monitoring and containment system to officials in Thailand.
"During my recent visit to South-East Asia, I was introduced to an organization that would be interested in helping us market our RFID Poultry Monitoring system in Thailand," said Perry Law, President of Smart-tek Communications, Inc. "Thailand has been greatly affected by the deadly H5N1 virus, having reported 22 human cases of the disease, of which 14 were fatal. According to some reports, Thailand has been victimized by 2 'waves' of the H5N1 virus. We believe our system can be a valuable tool as part of their preventative strategy to help contain and monitor the movement of poultry to help prevent the spread of the deadly disease should they be victims of another bird flu outbreak."
Initial discussions have taken place to sign a licensee agreement with an agent to help market the Smart-tek avian flu containment solution in Thailand, similar to the arrangement currently in place in the People's Republic of China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Romania.
"It is important for us to find an agent capable of introducing us and our system to the proper level of government officials," said Law. "We have identified a candidate that we feel is fully capable of providing us with such services."
The system, "RTAC-PM," was designed for the livestock industry and is targeted specifically for the poultry industry with user defined alerts that may assist governmental agencies to monitor poultry movement. The RTAC-PM system incorporates leading edge technology and is customized around customers' requirements with the flexibility to adapt to various types of OEM products.
"We believe the potential for application of the RTAC-PM system is tremendous in Thailand and it represents a great opportunity for Smart-tek to demonstrate the versatility of its RTAC-PM system and continue with our strategy of introducing our solutions to the European and Asian countries who are, or have already been, affected by this deadly and economically devastating virus," said Law.
