Datalogic targets Brazil

The Italian tech company with deep roots in Eugene opened a new factory in Brazil.

The company has spent $2 million to build the 23,680-square-foot plant in the city of Jundiai, in the state of São Paulo. It will churn out bar code readers, mobile computers and other devices, offer technical assistance and maintenance of the equipment, and serve as a demonstration center for new products, company officials said.

Datalogic has plants in Slovakia and Vietnam, as well as an operations center in Eugene.

Datalogic has been in Eugene, through several changes in ownership, since 1979. Its current owners are based in Bologna, Italy.
