Who We Are

Founded in 1982, Microscan has a long history of technology innovation, which includes the invention of the first laser diode barcode scanner and the 2D symbology Data Matrix. Today, Microscan remains a technology leader in barcode and machine vision solutions. Our dedicated clients include virtually all of the top 25 pharmaceutical and electronics manufacturers and many of the top ten automotive and medical diagnostics device manufacturers. Microscan is a subsidiary of Spectris plc, a technology-based instrumentation and electronics controls company, which provides us with the resources of a much larger company while allowing us to maintain a smaller and more agile organization. We’re small enough that individual’s ideas matter and are implemented, and you are not lost or treated as a number; but the people you will work with are some of the smartest and most driven you will ever meet. Microscan’s culture is innovative and energetic, and we're always looking for new team members who want to be part of it.
