Identifying Our Customer’s Needs Since 1976
From the start, over 45 years ago, Opticon has been one of the first companies in the world to specialize in manufacturing barcode scanners. At the time, barcode scanning was a revolutionary new technology used to identify information at any location. Inventory management, asset management, order picking; all these disciplines became increasingly efficient thanks to Opticon’s barcode scanners.
From this pioneering stage, we evolved into an international supplier of a wide range of 1D and 2D scanning solutions, including point-of-sale scanners, rugged mobile devices, and pocket-sized Bluetooth scanners.
These innovative answers to practical demands in the workplace have seen our presence expand to over 65 countries.
Scan, connect and communicate are the three verbs that describe our business. From scanner devices to electronic shelf labels, all our appliances provide the link between technology and the continuing demand for information. In other word: we scan, connect, and communicate the way we do business.
These three words also represent our mentality. A key characteristic of Opticon is our ability to see and hear our customers’ needs, and to link them to the optimal solution in a transparent and flexible manner.
