BIO-key secures initial orders for its line of biometric locks

June 14, 2017 - 

BIO-key International has secured initial orders for its TouchLock line of biometric locks, which were debuted at CES in January.

Each TouchLock model allows for multiple users’ fingerprints to be registered, depending upon the use case. The original owner or enrollee becomes the lock’s administrator and is able to manage between 1 to 20 different user fingers.

BIO-key’s lock line includes: a heavy-duty, water resistant padlock for outdoor use; a luggage lock that meets TSA travel lock standards; a compact lock for smaller portable items such as a purse or briefcase; a bike lock, and; a bluetooth enabled padlock.

“Our Asia Pacific sales team is pleased to have procured initial orders from our first distribution customers in Japan and China,” stated Wong Kwok Fong, managing director, BIO-key Hong Kong Limited. “Additionally, we have opened discussions with some of the largest bicycle manufacturers in both countries about bundling our biometric locks with the purchase of their bicycles.”

“The commercial launch of these innovative products is a major milestone for BIO-key’s consumer facing business and a direct benefit of our strategic partnership and presence in Asia,” commented Mike DePasquale, company chairman and CEO. “It’s fitting that we achieve our first commercial orders in Asia. We are working to build upon these sales in Asia at the same time we are in discussions with distributors and retailers in the U.S.”

The company will be showcasing the TouchLock series at GIFTEX 2017 next month in Tokyo, Japan.
