Equipements Sigma Inc. Confirms the Choice of Kolombo Technologies Systems to Protect Their Heavy Machinery

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 6, 2008) - Kolombo Technologies Ltd. ("Kolombo")(TSX VENTURE:KOL) is really proud to announce that the firm Equipements Sigma inc has chosen the TRS-2000 system to assure the complete protection of his fleet of heavy machinery dispatched in many points of sale across the whole province of Quebec.

The problem experienced by Sigma is not exclusive to this company. Heavy machinery theft is a very lucrative business for criminals and is becoming a serious problem for legitimate owners of this type of equipment.

The double impact of machinery theft

"We elected to choose the Kolombo antitheft program because vehicle tracking was no longer sufficient to achieve our objectives. The immobilization system has solved our theft problem once and for all," indicated Pierre Lavoie, Sigma's Director General.

Just recently, and much to Management's delight, an attempt to steal machinery was foiled by the Kolombo T-R-S-2000. The thieves were unable to leave with the two machines they were after. This is unquestionable proof that the system works. Notice to all thieves... you're wasting your time!

For Equipements Sigma, equipment theft raises a dual problem. First, each piece of stolen equipment is sold outside Quebec, where rules governing vehicle registration circumvented. Each theft becomes a lost sale for the company. Secondly, theft complicates relations with insurers.

"The choice of the TRS-2000 protection system by Equipement Sigma Inc. confirms the efficiency against robbery and capacities of the Kolombo Techonologies solutions to prevent heavy losses. We are really proud to have been selected as the one and only protection solution for their heavy machinery. The obtained results confirmed by the General Manager, M. Lavoie, says it all" declared M. Martin Arsenault, President of Kolombo Technologies.
