A strong finish to the year for Touchstar’s warehouse & logistics division

Although the market for mobile computing hardware remains a highly competitive one, recent months have seen a multitude of significant orders for Touchstar’s Bradford-based warehouse & logistics division. Newly acquired clients include;  

Coach House  

The UK’s largest wholesale and trade-only furniture and giftware supplier, Coach House, has invested in more than 40 TS8000 devices. The TS8000 is a robust and reliable touchscreen device that provides high-speed data capture features, helping to optimise warehouse operations. Accrington-based Coach House selected a model with an extended range scanner to increase productivity and efficiency while reducing chances of user error.    


Independent logistics and trade management provider Uniserve Group has ordered TS8000 devices across its UK and Singapore operations. Formed in 1984, the group remains a privately-owned company. In addition to the Uniserve brands the group also consists of other members include Zenith, James Kemball and Supply Chain Academy.


PWS, the market leader in the design and supply of quality kitchen components and work surfaces to manufacturers, retailers and installers, has purchased TS8000 devices to help with its distribution operation. With more than 8,000 products in stock at any one time, a slick distribution service is key to PWS continuing its reputation of being a reliable and innovative business.    

NGF Europe  

NGF Europe, a long-standing client of Touchstar, has ordered TS8000 handheld devices with Radio-frequency identification (RFID). NGF is a subsidiary company of the NSG Group of Japan, one of the World's leading manufacturers of glass products for building, automotive and information electronics applications. NGF will use the devices to build towards its goal of becoming the global leader in innovative high performance glass and glazing solutions, contributing to energy conservation and generation, working safely and ethically.    

Dr Organic   

Skincare products specialist Dr Organic has purchased a significant quantity TouchStar’s TS7000 vehicle-mounted terminals. The rugged devices offer the highest level of automation and are the ideal industrial terminals for warehouse- and logistics-based vehicle mount and fork lift truck applications. Swansea-based Dr Organic also invested in extended range scanners to further boost the functionality of the terminal.    

Third Party Products  

In addition to selling it’s own range of in-house manufactured mobile hardware, Touchstar also supply and support hardware from other leading manufacturers with whom it has established partnerships.

Europa owns warehouses and transit facilities throughout the UK and Asia, and has more than 600 employees.
