Carson City, NV and Hong Kong (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - 12 ReTech Corporation (OTCQB: RETC), announced today that it has reached agreement with the Hudson Group, a subsidiary of Switzerland based Dufry, A.G. to begin installing their 12 Technology Suite at the Soybu Boutique located in Dallas's Love Field airport and at a second unidentified store that is also operated by the Hudson Group.
Soybu is a registered trademark and brand of Active Fashion Group which is being acquired by 12 ReTech Corporation's subsidiary 12 Retail Corporation. The Hudson Group operates retail stores in many airports around the world including Tumi, Victoria’s Secret, Fred Segal and two Soybu Boutiques. 12 ReTech Corporation and Hudson have agreed to install the 12 Technology Suite in the Soybu Boutique and one additional Hudson operated store located at Dallas's Love Field airport, to test how to build co-ordination between brands using 12's technologies. The financial details of this arrangement have not been disclosed.
Angelo Ponzetta, 12 ReTech's CEO stated, "Many people don't realize that Hudson and Dufry together operate over 2,200 stores in 64 countries around the world and are connected with many world-renowned consumer brands. By demonstrating what our Omni-Channel retail technology solution can achieve for retailers, we can make inroads into many Hudson associated consumer brands throughout the world."
Donna Murray, Senior Specialty Buyer for the Hudson Group said, "We have been looking for some new technology solutions to give our stores additional lift and 12 ReTech's Technology Suite is a very exciting solution. Thanks to our existing relationship with the Active Fashion Group this was really a no-brainer for us."
Angelo Ponzetta concluded, "Active Fashion Group's relationship with Hudson and others is one of the reasons that we are so excited about our micro-brand acquisition strategy. It gives us a strong foothold into established retailers whereby both the retailer and our shareholders can benefit."
