BOCA RATON, Fla.—ADT Commercial announced its expansion into the electronic article surveillance (EAS) market through a strategic alliance with WG Security Products, Inc., as well as a team of vertical market leaders. 

“We’re excited to have ADT Commercial as our business partner,” said WG Security Products, Inc. Executive Vice President Graham Handyside in the announcement. “WG strives to help more retailers minimize shrink, improve sales and reduce in-store labor costs.”

ADT Commercial will install and service WG Security Products’ comprehensive EAS portfolio in the U.S., including a full range of detection systems, hard tags, specialty tags, disposable labels, deactivation devices and detachers.

“We’re thrilled to expand into electronic article surveillance and offer customers another provider to consider in their search for EAS solutions, one with service excellence at its core,” said ADT Executive Vice President, Commercial Dan Bresingham. “We’re proud of the dedicated team we’ve assembled, with decades of retail and EAS experience to deliver on the promise of best-in-class service, including Rex Gillette, a 35-year veteran in retail loss prevention and the EAS market.”

ADT Commercial will help customers build and maintain their current EAS solutions that utilize 58 kHz AM frequency technologies, regardless of type or manufacturer, as well as install new systems. Additionally, ADT Commercial will provide remote system tuning and troubleshooting, which reduces the need for technician trips and helps customers save money.

“WG Security Products is a trusted and comprehensive provider, and this partnership enables us to offer customers a total EAS solution,” said Rex Gillette, VP of retail sales at ADT Commercial.

Headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., ADT Commercial supports more than 300,000 customer locations with its strong network of over 5,000 employees across 150 offices. WG, established in 1998, has been an innovator in the EAS industry with its ingenuity and progressive thinking.
