HANOVER, MD / ACCESSWIRE / June 19, 2014 / Brekford Corp. (the "Company") (OTCBB, OTCQB: "BFDI"), a leading public safety technology service provider of automated traffic safety enforcement ("ATSE") solutions, parking enforcement solutions, and an end-to-end suite of technology equipment for public safety vehicle services, announced today the signing of a multi-year contract with Grupo Canviso, a company that provides an array of driver licensing, driver education, vehicle registration, and ATSE services to municipalities in Mexico.
"For Brekford, this represents a significant growth opportunity in 2014 and beyond, as the first city contract will require up to 25 speed camera systems. We are very excited to embark on this exclusive ATSE international expansion initiative in Mexico with a solid company such as Grupo Canviso," commented Rod Hillman, President and Chief Operating Officer of Brekford Corp. "Rather than attempt to set up a direct marketing and business development operation in a foreign country with different legal, governmental, and cultural challenges, we decided to partner with local experts who understand the market, both from an opportunity and risk perspective. Grupo Canviso's values are uniquely aligned with Brekford because their focus is purely on public safety, and they understand that automated enforcement technology is just one element of an effective program. Grupo Canviso will incorporate ATSE services with a broad program focused on drivers and vehicles with a goal to improve safety and operational efficiency within Mexican municipalities. Public officials in these areas have significant concerns regarding speeding, aggressive driving, and other unsafe practices leading to a high rate of accidents and deaths on the roads."
C.B. Brechin, Brekford's Chief Executive Officer, added "We can't wait to get started with this momentous expansion, which has been in the planning stages for months. Brekford has already received excellent feedback from multiple municipalities regarding our technology and back end services, and we believe that Grupo Canviso is the perfect partner to lead the effort in Mexico."
"We are excited to be working with Brekford in providing ATSE services to our clients in Mexico," said Norma Canales, Director of Business Development for Grupo Canviso. "We believe that our local knowledge, experience, and presence combined with Brekford's technology, public safety background, and professional approach will be a winning strategy for expanding market share in Mexico. Automated traffic safety enforcement solutions are not commonly available in the Mexican market, where speeding and other traffic violations have become a major public safety concern. With a population that is more than one-third the size of the United States, and numerous cities and municipalities comparable in size to the U.S. top 20, Mexico represents an extremely large market opportunity."
