Eftpos equipment maker Provenco said today its international retail automation division had secured new orders for its outdoor payment terminals and related equipment worth $6 million.

Chief executive David Ritchie said the deal would see further eftpos terminals installed progressively in Asia over the coming year.

"The new order comes on the back of the manufacture and deployment of over 5000 outdoor payment terminals throughout Malaysia last year.

He said the order was an endorsement of the EMV (chip card) technologies supplied by Provenco for use in petrol stations.

Provenco shares were up 4c at 80c in early trading today. They have traded between 56c and $1.00 in the last year.
