"We are particularly satisfied with the trend shown by the results achieved in 2014, which demonstrate the effectiveness of the strategic choices that were adopted, choices aimed at achieving Group growth and in particular at expanding our presence in emerging geographic areas which have a higher growth rate and at maintaining a leadership role in Europe and the USA,” said Romano Volta, Chairman and CEO of the Datalogic Group.

Looking forward, he noted that the company’s investments made throughout the year made the positive growth possible, and that was necessary to help the company move forward.

“The considerable increase in Research and Development investments, which must be underlined, is necessary to guarantee the continuous innovation of product and technology,” he said. “Looking at 2015, which we expect to be a year of growth and development, the target continues to be the satisfaction of our customers and partners, with an efficient management of costs".


For Germany-based Z-LASER, 2014 turnover increased by 13%, year over year, as a result of positive growth rate across all business units.

"We are placing special focus on the areas of 3D measurement and customer-specific OEM product solutions, here we are looking to increase our worldwide market penetration," said new COO Rüdiger Ruh.

All business units (Positioning lasers, lasers for imaging, laser projectors, OEM, and trade goods) all demonstrated positive growth rates, and company investments into new and emerging technology and automated production systems are expected to result in even more precision and repeatability in future Z-LASER products, according to the company.
