TURKEY – WORLDWIDE – Having started as a small electronics operation in Bologna, Italy over forty years ago, Datalogic, now boasts a veritable ‘Who’s Who’ of logistics customers in its current role as a provider of automatic data capture systems, supply chain essentials so much used these days in bar code readers, mobile computer terminals and the like. A portfolio of over a thousand patents and heavy investment in even more innovation has led to the establishment of the group’s new Business Development division and now the company has announced the opening of its latest office in Istanbul.

With the new office in Turkey, Datalogic is further expanding its direct presence within the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region and local customer and market needs. The Turkish office will be fully equipped and ready to provide its customers with sales, technical and administrative support. Istanbul, as the biggest city in Turkey, is also considered to be the epicentre for business and is the ideal place for the new subsidiary, which officially opened on April 1, 2014. Datalogic is aiming to grow even further within the Turkish market and to move closer to its customers within the country. Valentina Volta, CEO of Datalogic Business Development Division and ADC EMEA VP Sales & Services, elaborates:

Due to our wide variety and high quality offerings we see a lot of opportunities in the Retail, Manufacturing, Transportation & Logistics and Healthcare sectors. The opening of a new office in Istanbul will allow us to be closer to our customers and better satisfy their growing needs. We have great expectations in terms of overall growth within this region and are very excited to have established a local presence in what can be defined a bridge between Europe and Asia.”
