About Us

Gary Hardesty founded Bar Code Depot in 1996 with the vision of providing honesty, value, and an unsurpassed customer service experience.

A small company with access to a massive stock of technology, Bar Code Depot is built on the service principal.

After working for many years in sales at LXE, Gary believed that a smaller company could meet the needs of many and varied clients by tending to all options available in the field – that includes by refurbishing and repairing quality used RF equipment for customers who find it economically feasible to keep legacy systems.

Of course, Bar Code Depot also offers the latest state-of-the-art RF equipment available at discount prices for those who want to upgrade. For those with short term needs, like a big annual inventory period, we provide equipment leases at prices far more economical than you will find anywhere else.

And, no matter the purchase or lease, Bar Code Depot provides exemplary service and support for all of our customers.

We offer 60 years of combined experience with LXE and the data collection industry, honest answers to your questions before the sale, fast repair turn-around times and knowledgeable courteous technical support afterwards. We are here with you every step of the way, whether you have a new warehouse or need help keeping your present warehouse running smoothly.

We offer technology from Zebra/Motorola, Honeywell/LXE/Intermec and Datalogic, spanning from barcode systems, RFID, vehicle mount computers, and/or Batch data collection systems. We even have pre-packaged RF or Batch data collection software suites for inventory control.

Whatever your needs, we are committed to giving you the best service possible. That includes by staffing a call center right here in the USA, which is always ready to help and answer your questions. At Bar Code Depot, we empower our customers to make smarter equipment purchasing decisions.

We also offer a complete line of media materials to satisfy all your warehouse applications. We specialize in custom and pre-printed barcode labels, as well as bin location placards.

Bar Code Depot is committed to customer satisfaction. Our relationships with the leading manufacturers and distributors, combined with our dedicated, knowledgeable staff, allows us to deliver state-of-the-art hardware and systems with responsive personal customer service. As 2011 LXE Preferred Partners, we continue to serve you today in ways the others cannot, and we look forward to working with you.
