Datalogic group history

Founded by Romano Volta, Datalogic is born in a room in the rectory of the Parish in Quarto Inferiore, on the outskirts of Bologna, Italy. Initially, production is centered on electronic devices, but soon the direction changes towards the design and production of photoelectric sensors for textile, ceramic and packaging industries. Soon a larger plant is required, marking the beginning of Datalogic’s base in Lippo.
