The companies' joint traceability/tracking solutions advance the use of RFID technologies to enhance supply chain, MRO, Logistics, and manufacturing processes.

Croop-LaFrance has made inroads into the defense sector, and has current contracts with the USAF, US Army, and others. Croop is leveraging its experience from leading commercial customers to help clients in the government sector.
