Paxar, a global leader providing merchandising systems, bar code, RFID and identification technologies for apparel customers and the retail supply chain, announced that VF Corporation (NYSE:VFC), the worlds largest apparel company, has chosen Paxars Monarch RFID printer/encoders and smart labels for use by its Imagewear division.
VF has been a great partner with Paxar for years, purchasing high quality merchandising tags, labels and systems globally, said Rick Bauer, Paxars Senior Director, RFID Technical Research. We are pleased that VF has chosen to extend that partnership to our RFID solutions. Their selection of Paxar to fill the critical requirement for RFID pallet and carton labels being shipped to major retailers validates the reliability and consistency of our products, services and technical support.
We performed extensive testing of RFID equipment and labels before choosing Paxars products for the Imagewear division, said Jim Jackson, VFs Director, Vendor Relationship Management. The labels provided by Paxar, and run through Paxars Monarch printer/encoder, have been virtually 100% readable. Paxars extensive experience in the retail market, the extremely high read rates weve seen, and the fact that Paxar ensures 100% satisfaction, gives VF the peace of mind that the solution weve chosen is in compliance with the requirements of our major retailer partners, and will help keep our implementation costs low.
