JADAK LLC ─ supplier of HF RFID, optical data collection and machine vision technologies to OEMs in medical, security, gaming and kiosk industries ─ announced it has acquired the assets of SkyeTek, a Denver, Co.,-based provider of embedded and standalone UHF RFID Solutions for OEM equipment suppliers.

David Miller, president of JADAK, said: “RFID growth has accelerated within the industrial, retail and healthcare markets in recent years. In healthcare for example, we’re seeing more and more OEMs integrate RFID to improve their customers’ workflow and reduce errors, thereby giving hospital staff more time to focus on the patients."
