Good Scents for the Office, Hotel, Bar or Restaurant

New Technology for Enhancing Interior Environments to Launch Across Europe

LONDON--(Marketwire - September 20, 2007) - Ambius, www.ambius.com, the world's leading interior landscaping company, has chosen the scenting and indoor air quality technology of US-based Prolitec Inc. for its scent-related interior services.

The new ambient scenting services, which Ambius will launch across Europe later this month, include the use of scent to promote scented products at the point of sale; scent branding services to help major brands create and deploy scent signatures; performance scenting to reduce stress and create more productive office and factory environments; and odor remediation. A wide range of potential customers includes hotels, casinos, supermarkets, offices, retailers and bar & pub groups.

Ambius enhances the environment of offices and other commercial spaces with plants, corporate art and other elements addressing all five senses: sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.

"We chose Prolitec because they are the clear technology leader in the field," stated Jeff Mariola, Managing Director of Ambius. "Prolitec is unique because it allows us to create a uniform hypoallergenic scent effect in any interior space from very small to very large."

Under terms of the agreement, Prolitec will be the exclusive provider of hypoallergenic fragrances and computer-controlled scent delivery systems. Ambius will use these elements to provide scent branding and ambient scenting services in Europe and the UK under the brand Ambius Microfresh.

"The sense of smell is arguably our most powerful," Mariola continued. "The discreet use of scent can transform and enhance the human experience of a space particularly when artfully combined with visual elements and themes."

Prolitec is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA. The company specializes in aerobiology, indoor air quality and scent media technology. It services several thousand clients around the world and extensively across the USA.

"We are pleased to receive this technology endorsement and to play a key role in the Ambius mission," stated Richard Weening, CEO of Prolitec. "Ambius enjoys thousands of trusted client relationships in the UK and Europe who will now be given the opportunity to use scent as well as visual elements to enhance their environments."

Ambius is a division of Rentokil Initial Plc (LSE: RTO), www.rentokil-initial.com, one of the largest business services companies in the world, operating in the major economies of Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and Africa. The company has some 70,000 employees providing a range of business support services in over 40 countries.
