Kemtek & Datalogic: Going Beyond Technology in the Bar Coding Industry

Kemtek has always pursued advanced and innovative technologies that go beyond the boundaries of what was thought possible in the world of bar coding across the board. In this mission, Kemtek found the perfect partner in Datalogic, a bar coding and auto ID OEM developer that does just that in multiple sectors from retail and point-of-sale, to the warehousing, logistics, automotive sectors and more.

Bar coding remains one of the most successful and prevalent technologies ever developed, and that trend looks set to continue, along with other allied technologies in the wider auto ID realm, including RFID. As such, the demand for readers, imagers, data capturers and printers that deliver greater efficiency and productivity continues to expand across an ever wider scope of industries and applications.

It’s because of this demand-driven competition that companies like Kemtek, who go beyond distributing auto ID, bar coding and RFID solutions, and Datalogic, who transcend manufacturing of such products, make natural partners for customers with great expectations.
