ENTERTECH SYSTEMS, the official operating partner for Suprema in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Puerto Rico, today announced the deployment of Suprema biometric devices for access control at Aphria, a licensed producer, supplier and seller of medical marijuana. The solution was installed by Security ONE Alarm Systems, a security provider in southwestern Ontario for over 30 years.

Aphria has three state-of-the-art light and computer controlled greenhouses in a 450,000 square foot facility in Leamington, Ontario, plus 22,000 square feet of production space with plans to significantly increase capacity in the next 12 to 24 months.

“The Suprema biometric readers installed by Security ONE are really easy and quick to use,” says John Cervini, Aphria cofounder and CAO. “The system and its functionality are strong and quite nice to work with. Having controlled access to all areas of our facility has improved daily management and helped address Health Canada regulations for security.”

The Suprema biometric solution provides access control to sensitive areas with different security levels on everything from exterior and interior doors, raw goods and processing areas, and the greenhouse. Different security levels have been implemented depending on where a person is within the facility. These measures have helped the company strictly control access throughout every aspect of the facility.

“At ENTERTECH SYSTEMS, our goal is to help systems integrators like Security ONE provide end users with biometric access control solutions that address market or regulatory requirements while providing secure operational ease and better access management oversight,” says Rob Douglas, CEO of ENTERTECH SYSTEMS. “We are pleased to have helped Aphria secure their sprawling facility with a biometric solution that ensures only a person’s true identity can be used for access.”
