A BARCODE, A BARCODE, MY KINGDOM FOR A BARCODE
Cortec Group, a New York-based private equity group, found a winner when
it purchased Chicago-based BarcodesInc, whose products serve growing
demand for the scannable data used by organizations ranging from the U.S.
Postal Service to retailers and health care providers.
BarcodesInc’s product portfolio includes more than 15,000 barcode scan-
ners, mobile-computing devices, identification-card devices, point-of-sale
peripherals, barcode-label-and-receipt printers and other gadgets designed
to help customers improve productivity and profitability.
The company sells direct to its customers through a comprehensive web-
site, eliminating the need for third-party resellers and giving customers
greater selection; its brands range from Honeywell to Zebra and Cobra.
“The [BarcodesInc] team has built a series of e-commerce sites so interactive and comprehensive that they allow customers to really do everything they
need to do online,” says David Schnadig, a Cortec Group managing partner
and ACG New York member. “This really streamlines the purchasing ability
for companies with less complicated infrastructure requirements.”
