STC Laboratories Introduces PAKCheck.

Something's always cooking in the Lab. Today, we're happy to introduce PAKCheck, the first automated inventory system designed specifically for cigarette racks. Most convenience stores will simply hand-count their inventory of cigarette packs in an effort to hamper theft. However, hand-counting is inefficient and expensive. Automating the process cuts that cost and tightens the security in a way that hand-counting never could.

PAKCheck is the brain-child of Patrick Kapenga, owner and president of STC Laboratories. For the past two years, Patrick has taken two ailing convenience stores and turned them into profitable power houses, attracting the attention of several potential purchasers. And before his time in the world of convenience stores, he successfully ran two other companies that sold and distributed building supplies. To round out his experience, Patrick has served on the Board of Directors for the Real Estate Investors Association of Michigan, as well as the Board of Directors and Governmental Affairs Committee for RPOA of Kent County.

There's more to come from the STC Labs. We can't wait to share them you.
