Fairfield started life in 1982, where customers came to us for help with printing labels which required linear 1D bar codes. They wanted to identify products and process them using scanners, so they could spend more time focusing on their business. Early successes created rapid growth after becoming recognised as specialists in this area. Since then, we’ve been helping our customers label, identify and automate their operations using a variety of technologies and applications, from product and in-process labels to laser marking and tracking surgical instruments and supplying online readers that track, trace and check products on production lines.
Current MD, Mark Lynch, joined the business in 2000, increasing the coding expertise of the organisation and also incorporating RFID, which was in its infancy at the time. This took Fairfield from a traditional labelling and scanning company, to a full provider of end to end solutions. Using close, strong and impartial relationships with the industry’s leading software, hardware and integration companies, Fairfield quickly established itself as a leader in Auto ID. This has developed into specialisations into vertical markets such as healthcare, with the company supplying a range of products and solutions. from a simple label, through to printers, software solutions and project management.
Today we retain and continue to expand our key relationships with the industry’s leading manufacturers, embracing new technologies and constantly updating our product portfolio to provide you, our customers, with a cost-effective solution that will help your business prosper.
We constantly strive to provide our customers with the most appropriate up-to-date labelling, RFID and traceability solutions available, confirming our place at the forefront of new technologies. (Mark Lynch – Managing Director)
