SATO America Reduces Prices on Ethernet Barcode Printers

Always a great product, made even better, with a lower cost of ownership

CHARLOTTE, NC - May 4, 2009 - SATO, a pioneer in the Automatic Identification and Data Collection (AIDC) industry and a leader in barcode printing, labeling, and EPC/RFID solutions, announced today it has reduced pricing on its Ethernet installed barcode printers.

"Historically SATO products are known for their durability and outstanding performance," said Gary Krause, director of marketing at SATO America. "Remaining vigilant to our partner's needs, we have negotiated a significant price reduction for the Ethernet interface installed into our CLe, GTe, M84Pro, LMe, M10e, M5900RVe, and XLe Series, along with the ever popular GLe Series where we have reduced the price on not only the Ethernet installed option but the Wireless installed option as well. The business climate today has many in the industry addressing cost reductions, which in some instances result in service reductions to their customers. We will continue to seek methods and ways to lower the cost of operation and ownership for our partners and customers, without having to lower their operational expectations or our service to them."
