This week FEIG Electronics, a global supplier of RFID readers and antennas, announced the expansion of its United States operations and relocation of the company’s North American headquarters, potentially building more demand to the Canadian market.
A pioneer in radio frequency identification (RFID) technology with more than 40 years of electronics experience, FEIG is one of just a few suppliers worldwide with the capability to offer RFID readers and antennas for all three standard operating frequency ranges: LF, HF and UHF.
