Fractal Antenna, a privately held Bedford company, supplies products for wireless applications; Nashua Corp. of Nashua is a manufacturer of label products, paper transaction supplies, and converted RFID tags.
Proponents of radio-frequency identification tags claim they will help make supply-chain and inventory management more efficient by enabling companies to keep better track of their merchandise.
Fractal Antenna and Nashua Corp. announced a licensing agreement to distribute RFID tags using fractal antenna technology.
"Using advanced fractal antennas will enable Nashua to offer RFID labels and tags with enhanced performance, not only for tracking cases and pallets in the supply chain, but also for individual items and even hard-to-tag items containing metal and water," Robert Pernice, director of RFID marketing and sales at Nashua Corp., said in a statement.
