“By acquiring PANMOBIL, FEIG ELECTRONIC expands its product line of LF, HF and UHF RFID hardware with mobile AutoID devices optimized for use in logistics and manufacturing operations,” reports Eldor Walk, Managing Director, FEIG ELECTRONIC. “At the same time, FEIG expands into the field of barcode technology which is a great compliment to our RFID portfolio.”
