Alcohol Countermeasure Systems Penetrates New Markets Through Acquisition of Seres Ethylometre of France

TORONTO, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ - Alcohol Countermeasure Systems Corp (ACS) has acquired the assets and intellectual property of Seres Ethylometre effective December 1, 2009. The assets include the popular 679 series and newly launched SAF'IR family of infrared breath alcohol testers.

As part of the acquisition, key employees of Seres will be redeployed within France or relocated to global ACS offices to manage the transition to the new manufacturing facility in Toronto, Canada starting January 2010. Manufacturing processes and components will remain uncompromised to retain the OIML and other product certifications that Seres has achieved.

"We admired Seres' capability of combining the accuracy of infrared breath alcohol detection with the compact size of a handheld alcohol tester. With this technology now under the ACS umbrella, we can leverage our relationships acquired over 35 years to bring new choices to our customers," said Felix J.E. Comeau, Chairman & CEO of ACS.

"We are very proud that Seres Ethylometry will become a significant part of the ACS group," says Stephane Vialettes, President of Seres Environnement.

Chris Wilson, Business Unit Manager of Alcohol Testers at ACS said, "The accuracy of infrared technology to measure breath alcohol concentration is undeniably superior - but has typically been accompanied by high prices. This new relationship will permit ACS to deliver affordable infrared breath testers."

ACS will retain the Seres brand through its French subsidiary Alcolock France to continue supporting existing customers.
