Barcodes Group Continues To Grow Through M&A With Acquisition Of NeWave RFID

Chicago, IL /PRNewswire/ - Barcodes Group, through its subsidiary Smart Label Solutions (SLS), announces its acquisition of NeWave Sensor Solutions, LLC, a pioneer in RFID technology innovation and inventor of the Patented Wave® antenna.

Founded in 2010 by the visionary Dr. Walter (Den) Burnside, Ph.D. EE, NeWave developed many advanced technologies that clients use to efficiently manage their operations.

This is a major evolution for this technology, and now we need to commercialize it and make it available to the world. The acquisition of NeWave enables us to bring complete solutions to market and transform how organizations operate."

Barry Burnside, Founding Partner and COO of NeWave Sensor Solutions, shares Dan's enthusiasm: "We believe the combination of NeWave's intellectual property and SLS' technical expertise will accelerate the development of RFID as the premier technology for tracking goods from manufacture to the point of sale.
