INTELLI-CHECK, INC., a developer of advanced document verification systems, announced that it has received an order for 75 age verification units from Sunoco, Inc. for the oil company’s retail outlets.
Frank Mandelbaum, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Intelli-Check, said the age-verification units marketed by its IDentiScan division will be deployed at Sunoco’s retail outlets in Ohio. Ohio is one of a number of states that have passed affirmative defense legislation encouraging retailers to use scanners to verify the age of would-be purchasers of age-restricted products such as alcohol and tobacco. The units will initially be distributed to Sunoco’s company owned stores and then to franchised Sunoco retail outlets in the state. Sunoco has previously purchased units for their New York retail outlets.
“Sunoco has selected our product as the oil company’s standard for age verification units which are being deployed to help protect its retail outlets from inadvertently selling age-restricted products to under-age purchasers,” Mr. Mandelbaum stated. “With more than 4,100 outlets in 19 states and the District of Columbia, Sunoco represents a large potential customer for our units.”
