We make IT work.

1991, Jim Ledbetter and John Rewcastle began selling bar code applications and customized applications for manufacturing companies. This included the sale of bar code scanners, printers and portable terminals as part of a solution to data entry errors and labor-intensive processes.  Initial customer applications involved automation in factories; with manufacturing, distribution and field service being the most prominent.  Over the years, Barcom developed expertise in RFID, Fixed-Mount Scanning, Factory Automation, RF Infrastructure and Application Solutions.

Data Collection Solutions for the Warehouse

Today, Barcom not only provides hardware solutions for fast-paced industrial applications, but also develops their own transaction-based software that helps their customers automate operations to eliminate the need for paper-based processes. Barcom’s business is both regional and national, with continued growth year over year.

Run A More Efficient Warehouse

We have learned a lot over the past 25 years, especially when it comes to helping customers improve warehouse efficiency. Our “25 Tips for an Efficient Warehouse” document is a fun collection of small steps that can yield big results.

Customers First

We have the best customers in the business!  And they are more than just customers – they are loyal clients, astute business partners, and good friends.  We appreciate their confidence in us and their commitment.

Barcom helped make our RF decisions effortless.  From testing to final selection, David Deardorff and  team provided A+ service and have always been available to assist regardless of the day or time. I can easily say the RF portion of our ERP Implementation went through smoother than any other project I have worked on in the past, thanks to Barcom.  I look forward to working with you again on future projects.

Barcom’s History of Success

25 years in business is an impressive position to be in, especially in the data collection industry.  With computer technology changing almost daily, the ups and downs of the economy, and the ever-increasing demands of the consumer, staying on top of their game is nothing short of a challenge.  “When you get to be in the business as long as we have, you quickly start to see what works and what doesn’t,” said Rewcastle.

Our Partners

We thank our trusted partners for their industry-leading solutions and outstanding support. Without their great products and expert guidance, we would not have been as successful over the years.

BARCOM is a great partner to work with, and over the years we’ve developed a successful win-win relationship with them. They are focused on the customers’ needs at all times, and how they can improve their operations. This philosophy aligns nicely with what Honeywell is all about. The BARCOM relationship with members of our company started back in 1991, and I have worked with Jim Ledbetter myself for many years. He and his team are outstanding individuals to work with, and I look forward to working with them for many more years to come. Congratulations, BARCOM, on your 25-year anniversary!

Jeff Teague, VPM – Honeywell Sensing & Productivity Solutions

It’s always a pleasure to work with the Barcom team.  They are one of the most knowledgeable and professional teams in the industry.  Thank you for your continued partnership and we look forward to another great 25 years.  Happy Anniversary!

Ryan Johnson Hagen, Honeywell Business Development – ScanSource

Barcom has been my go-to automation partner.  When customers have challenging projects requiring integration of multiple hardware & software applications with our products, I call Barcom. 

There is always an unexpected variable in the implementation of a system.  Barcom handles these unexpected variables and gets the project completed on time.  Barcom has installed and programmed large roll outs with our products and they all have been successful.

To Barcom and their great team, Happy 25th Anniversary!  I look forward to many more years of a successful partnership. 

Matt Smith, Sensor Sales Manager – Cognex
