NEW YORK, Oct. 5, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TIE Technologies, Inc. (Pink Sheets:TTCS), who operates a portfolio of technology assets focused on proprietary smart logistics for Homeland Security and environmental disaster remediation, telemetrics, and advanced IT solutions, today announced that its award-winning Whirlwind Media Services subsidiary (website: http://www.whirlwindms.com/ ) has commenced its European Initiative with the establishment of its first London, United Kingdom affiliate.

Whirlwind Media Services, award winning Web design, Media Services and hosting division, continues to expand through both its organic growth and through its selective acquisitions. The path to increased profitability at Whirlwind is enhanced by the TIE Technologies portfolio of applications and software services which can be marketed to the growing number of corporate customers. Earlier in 2010, Whirlwind acquired the dynamic New York design studio Forescene Creative Solutions. The successful integration of this division and the strong early response to the affiliate program launched previously in the year continues to strengthen and grow revenues for Whirlwind.

The marketing affiliate program enables businesses and individuals to become part of the Whirlwind success story by becoming sales representatives offering the award winning services and expertise offered by Whirlwind and its New York design studio. The first European affiliate, Mr. Vincent Placide, is a marketing expert based in London, United Kingdom. He has been helping businesses of all sizes increase their profile and profitability through enhanced marketing efforts and materials.

"The establishment of this first affiliate is exciting as we commence our expansion into the European markets. The European market is important to our overall global strategy. With over 40 years of combined experience in Europe, our management team is focused on the establishment and growth within the European market," stated Graham Mew, Executive Vice President, TIE Technologies. "As TIE continues to develop applications, many of them are targeted to serve the Whirlwind Customers such as our in-house e-Loyalty program. Whirlwind provides web interfaces and hosts proprietary applications for our Smart Logistics division's various products and services."

Vincent Placide said, "The ability to present London area businesses and organizations with the dynamic marketing materials, world class designs from their New York studios, and programs that Whirlwind Media Services offers is exciting and energizing for London. I'm ecstatic about joining the team."
