In an interview with Holography News, he and Richard Bard, founder and CEO of OpSec, explained their plan to integrate ELEF
's and Diffco's facilities to create an integrated embossed hologram production company.
In April 1994 he purchased British-based ELEF
PLC, and in October he acquired a second holographic printer, Baltimore-based Diffraction Co.
TSL, the Denver company that acquired British embossing company ELEF PLC, has changed its name to Optical Security Industries Inc and will be using OpSec as its trading name.
Bard described the ELEF acquisition as another critical piece of the rapid growth scenario.
Only men of the age of 20 and above (that is, possible to be potential warriors) were counted, for a total of 603 elef
. For the sacerdotal tribe of Levi, the males were counted from the age of one month, for a total of 23 elef
Or go back further to OpSec's purchase of ELEF
and Diffco (in 1994) and six companies have become one.
He helped the privately-owned UK-based holographic company ELEF
establish a presence in the security business and participated in its merger with the publicly quoted US company OpSec.
TSL Inc, the Denver hologram company specialising in vehicle license plate protection, acquired ELEF
plc, the English hologram producer, starting the history of transatlantic acquisition history that has been a feature of TSL and its subsequent manifestations.
Woodd was the founder/owner of ELEF
plc (formerly Light Fantastic) which he sold to OpSec in 1994 (see HN Vol 8 No 4).
