ELSAG North America is the new corporation created by ELSAG Datamat's completed acquisition of Remington ELSAG Law Enforcement Systems (RELES), manufacturer of the Mobile Plate Hunter-900 (MPH-900) advanced Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) system.
Remington ELSAG Law Enforcement Systems (RELES) was created in 2004 as a 50/50 joint venture between Remington Arms Company, Inc., and ELSAG Datamat, to sell ALPR systems to law enforcement and government agencies in the U.S. These products have been adopted by more than 300 law enforcement agencies in 28 states, including the New York State Police, the Atlanta Police Department, the Colorado State Patrol, and the Pinellas County (Fla.) Sheriff's Department. In 2007, RELES was awarded important homeland security contracts in partnership with large U.S. corporations operating in this sector.
ELSAG North America President and CEO, Mark Windover, recently announced plans to significantly expand the company's business in North America. The growth plan includes opening five field offices plus a new world headquarters in Brewster, N.Y., as well as increasing its manufacturing site and Technical Center in North Carolina.
ELSAG North America's goal is to support law enforcement in their missions of public safety and homeland security with ALPR capabilities and other related technologies aimed at advancing and expanding those missions.
