TSC Auto and The Barcode Warehouse establish partnership

Together on the road to success in the UK

The Barcode Warehouse, a leading system integrator and supplier of barcode solutions in the UK, will offer its customers as of today a differentiated product line by TSC Auto ID, one of the top 10 manufacturers of powerful, competitive label printers worldwide. With signature of the contract in September, the two companies established a partnership programmed for success, providing both resellers and end customers in different industries with mature auto ID solutions.

The company, headquartered in Nottinghamshire, England, is a specialist in wireless mobile auto ID solutions, counting some of the largest companies in the UK among its customers. More than 50,000 units are currently monitored and managed – The Barcode Warehouse works only with leading manufacturers and is continually strengthening its market leadership.

For Ross J. Lee, Business Development Director, TSC Auto ID is the perfect partner: "With these thermal direct and thermal transfer printers, we have completed our offering for our customers, especially in the sectors of industry, trade, healthcare, transport and logistics. The robust desktop, midrange and industrial high-power printers of this manufacturer can easily be integrated into different IT landscape and used exactly where they are needed. Because mobile and flexible solutions both within companies and outside them are precisely our strength."

The product line of The Barcode Warehouse currently especially includes two-, three-, four- and six-inch thermal transfer printers, as well as the handy, space-saving desktop units of the TDP-/TTP-225 and TDP-/TTP-247 series from the Taiwanese manufacturer. Since its founding in 1991, TSC Auto ID has implemented over 1.5 million printers worldwide, oriented exclusively towards customer needs and outstanding for their reliability, long service life and simple handling.

Especially for the area of health care, The Barcode Warehouse is an extremely interesting partner for TSC Auto ID. Henning Mahlstedt, Sales Director Northern Region at TSC Auto ID, says, "Of course, it's a great advantage for us that The Barcode Warehouse works with over 150 facilities in the National Health Service, providing among other things solutions for patient identification and blood sample labelling. For example, patient wristbands have been a requirement in England for a long time, unlike in Germany – a huge market for our TDP-225, TDP-225W and TTP-225 series."

But also in intra-company logistics, transport and commerce with shelf labelling or at point-of-sale, especially the two-inch models from TSC Auto ID can score over the competition with their outstanding performance standards in a handy design at a low price. TSC label printers provide the ideal basis for the English partner, guaranteeing their customers high quality in all products and top service from a single source, while ensuring competitive advantages due to increased productivity, reduced error rates and increasing margins.
