DES MOINES, Iowa, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Intoxalock, an industry leading provider of ignition interlock devices nationwide, has finalized the purchase of the ignition interlock contracts from Oklahoma Automotive Safety Systems, Inc. and now directly provides service to customers in the State of Oklahoma. Intoxalock is a certified ignition interlock device provider in 40 states across the country.
Oklahoma Automotive Safety Systems, Inc. has been a distributor for Intoxalock's ignition interlock devices for 16 years. Jim Adelman, owner of Oklahoma Automotive Safety Systems, Inc. announced his upcoming semi-retirement plans and initiated discussions with Intoxalock management to acquire his company's assets and customer contracts.
Oklahoma customers will continue to see the familiar faces of Oklahoma Automotive Safety Systems, Inc. Adelman will continue serving as the main contact for the service centers in Tulsa and Oklahoma City. In addition, Bill Eubanks, longtime Customer Service Director for Oklahoma Automotive Safety Systems, Inc., will be joining Intoxalock to oversee the dedication to providing continued customer satisfaction in the state.
"With 16 years of experience in the ignition interlock industry, I can say that without a doubt, Intoxalock is the best unit on the market. In addition, the support I've received from Intoxalock has been excellent," Mr. Adelman said.
Oklahoma customers will now benefit from Intoxalock's national support system, including 24/7 customer service and an expanding installation location network. In addition, they will have direct access to Intoxalock's technology as it continues to develop.
"Even though it might be a little different, Intoxalock isn't new to Oklahoma. We've been partnering together for 16 years and I know the company is committed to maintaining excellent customer service," Adelman said.
Adelman built his business with a strong emphasis on providing the best service possible to both existing and prospective customers. Much of his growth was based on referrals from previous customers who were consistently satisfied with the Intoxalock equipment and the service provided by Oklahoma Automotive Safety Systems, Inc.
"We're very excited for the opportunity to expand on the great foundation Jim has established in the state of Oklahoma. His emphasis on great customer service fits in perfectly with Intoxalock's existing business model," Dave Arringdale, Intoxalock Executive Chairman said.
