To set an idea into motion, you need those first few believers! In the beginning, there were just five workers to handle the first production, a secretary and Dr. Romano Volta solely managing all sales and marketing. With tenacity and determination, he began to contact clients one by one. Intuition and focus: thus the name Datalogic ("Datalogic Optic Electronics" by that time) gradually became a reference for optical controls, not only for the packaging valley or for its region, but for all of Italy. Rapid growth soon required larger quarters and Datalogic moved into a spacious modern facility in a small town near Bologna – Calderara di Reno... and this was just the beginning.
