With over 25 million valuable items marked worldwide, numerous crime reduction initiatives in operation, and a rapidly expanding international market, Selectamark Security Systems PLC has been providing world class property marking solutions since 1985.
Property marking is a safe, secure, low cost and highly effective theft deterrent. Permanently marked property is of little interest to thieves as it is virtually impossible to sell on. Property which has been marked can be easily identified if it is stolen and subsequently recovered by Police.
Selectamark is a family-owned, award winning company, based in Locksbottom, Kent. More than 25 years after the company was founded, its original permanent marking system Selectamark is still a popular choice as a visible theft deterrent for homeowners, businesses, educational establishments, retail outlets, hospitals and sporting enthusiasts, often used in conjunction with Selectamark’s wide range of tamper proof labels (http://www.selectalabel.com).
The company also offers state-of-the-art RFID tags for the protection of caravans and marine equipment. Other security products include an Asset ID system, The Chelsea Clip (bag theft deterrent), forensic marking range SelectaDNA (http://www.selectadna.co.uk), and bike marking registration system BikeRegister (http://www.bikeregister.com). Selectmark is also the world’s first company to be certified to LPS1224:Issue3 for its Secure Asset Register (http://www.secureassetregister.com).
Secured By Design
Selectamark products have Secured by Design status and many insurance companies actively recommend the Selectamark system to their policyholders, with some making it a condition of insurance cover.
Selectamark serves its customers both directly and through a growing network of distributors. Selectamark’s security systems are patented and distributed to every Continent in the world.
