CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - June 21, 2005) - Advanced ID Corporation (OTCBB:AIDO), a complete solutions provider in the radio frequency identification (RFID) and traceability market for the animal industry, concluded an agreement to acquire a controlling interest in AFG Asia Engineering Co., Ltd.

Operating from its Chiang Mai, Thailand office, AAE has ten employees focused primarily on the design, development, production and project management of UHF RFID products in Asia and Europe.
