Sometimes I forget just how far and wide bar code technology has permeated our world. I don't get onto the floor of a factory or warehouse all that often, but bar code technology IS present and functioning quite well there. The four companies below have expanded my mind with the barcode and RFID solutions they offer for a variety of industrial, factory, warehouse and commercial niches that many of us don't come across every day. Incidentially, I had the pleasure of talking with all of these vendors and they have been around and have decades of experience. If you have a problem, call or email them and ask for help with a solution.
