Stealth Mark’s Anti-Counterfeiting Technology Ready for Use in Art Galleries & Museums
First implementation expected to commence in November 2014
SCHAUMBURG, IL – October 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wellness Center USA, Inc. (OTCQB: WCUI), today announced that wholly-owned subsidiary StealthCo, Inc. (dba: Stealth Mark) is ready to deploy its premier security technology in art galleries & museums. With brisk forgery activities, 350,000 + pieces of stolen artwork to date, and more than $10 billion in losses, the need for a bulletproof solution has never been greater. StealthMarkTM microparticle technology use within art galleries & museums is set to begin in November 2014.
StealthMarkTM intelligent microparticle technology is precisely suited to the Art industry because it provides unbreachable security, accurate reference data, unique combinations of covert and overt markings, and track and trace capabilities that can be used on highly valuable pieces of art and objects such as paintings, ancient artifacts, sculptures, historical documents, and more.
From a cost standpoint, when involving paintings and artifacts valued in the millions of dollars, the cost to museums, galleries, and collectors for implementing StealthMarkTM technology can become insignificant. Expensive insurance premiums to protect such highly-valuable items can be drastically slashed to the point where such institutions can turn a profit when factoring the difference between cost of use and money saved.
Working closely with industry experts, Stealth Mark is poised to become a key player in combating the rise in illicit fraud, forgery, and theft of valuable goods; setting the bar for anti-criminal solutions in museums, galleries, and other applicable industries, globally.
“Although our target market continues to be the Healthcare & Pharmaceutical industries, the demand for our unique anti-counterfeit and data verification solutions cannot be ignored. Within the coming months, StealthMark is poised to demonstrate its technological versatility for use across a wide spectrum of products in several industries”, stated Rick Howard, CEO of StealthCo, Inc.
Industries affected by counterfeiting, diversion, and theft include: Aerospace, Defense, Automotive, Electronics, Technology, Pharmaceuticals, Consumer and Personal Care
Goods, Designer Products, Beverage/Spirits, and many others. In 2012, counterfeit Auto Parts accounted for $4 billion in the US and $12 billion globally, Electrical Parts were $15 billion, and Personal Care was $4 billion in the US. Furthermore, over 8% of the medical devices in circulation are counterfeit, Aerospace & Defense accounted for 520,000 counterfeit parts in the US, and greater than 5% of wine sold on the secondary market is counterfeit.
