Although the market for mobile computing hardware remains a highly competitive one, TouchStar have maintained a strong start to 2018 with a number of recent orders for the Bradford-based warehouse and logistics division. Newly acquired clients include;  


Leading supplier of automotive seating systems and electrical systems Lear has purchased 12 TS7000 vehicle-mounted terminals.  

The TS7000 provides a high resolution 7” TFT touchscreen with programmable LED backlight, which combines with the unit’s backlit keys to offer outstanding readability in both direct sunlight and all ambient lighting conditions. A full QWERTY keyboard with large keys allows for data entry by gloved fingers.  

Lear, a Fortune 500 company with 221 facilities across 36 countries, will deploy the TS7000s to ensure it meets its vision of consistently being recognised as the supplier of choice in the automotive seating and electrical industry.

With a compact, well balanced and lightweight design, the handheld computers facilitate superior data capture from scanning to voice to RFID.  

Available with a range of laser scanners and imagers, TouchStar’s handheld technology is also suitable to match particularly rugged and demanding environments with its robust design.    

P&B Foods  

West Yorkshire-based P&B Foods has invested in 12 TS7000 and six TS8000 devices to assist with its food distribution service.  

The TS8000 is a robust and reliable touchscreen device that provides high-speed data capture features, helping to optimise warehouse operations.
