HISTORY

Over 25 years of experience, innovation and growth in hospitality and retail

Hard work, fresh ideas and dedication

Labware was founded in 1995 out of an insight and a keen pioneering spirit that sought to challenge existing technology in order to bring an innovative idea to life: replacing the pen and pad for taking restaurant orders with a handheld computer using a wireless link. And at a time when wireless handheld computers did not even exist.
The established network of suppliers and associated electronics industry activities in the region made it possible to set up the production chain and create the company. Starting from a vision, Labware designed, produced and began to sell its products – first on the domestic market, then internationally.

Every achievement is the beginning of a new challenge!

Not one of our 25 years in business has passed without contributing to the company’s growth in terms of expertise, know-how, technological progress, and commercial expansion.
But what has never changed over those years is the pioneering spirit, the proactive attitude – and above all the passion, which heightens our pleasure and empowers our desire to innovate, allowing us to overcome any obstacle, to face up to the hardest challenges, and to achieve results that before would have seemed unrealistic.
