Jack Romaine Honored by AIDC 100

Congratulations to Jack Romaine as he joins AIDC 100. AIDC 100 is an invitation-only, non-profit association of automatic identification/data capture (AIDC) professionals who, over an extended period of time, have significantly contributed to the growth and advancement of the industry. Membership is limited to 100 Active Members worldwide, so this is a significant honor. The organization is a technical and business resource — with emphasis on education — whose primary goal is to enlarge the global business community’s knowledge and understanding of AIDC.

Jack Romaine commented “I am proud of what I have accomplished in this industry, but I have looked up to and admired the achievements of so many of the AIDC 100 members throughout my career. I find it hard to believe that I am now listed beside them. What an honor!”.

According to Jack Householder, Treasurer of AIDC 100, “I have known Jack Romaine for twenty years and he has advanced the state-of-the-art in the Auto-ID industry in barcoding, dimensioning (real time measurement of carton volume on high speed conveyors), and RFID at both Accu-Sort Systems, Inc. and at Element ID. I was proud to nominate Jack as a member of AIDC 100 and to welcome him as a new member”.

Al Wurz, an AIDC 100 Member Emeritus, is one of the pioneers in barcoding and founded Accu-Sort Systems in 1971. Accu-Sort was the leader in high performance, fixed position barcode scanning. Al added “Jack made significant contributions to all the product lines at Accu-Sort, particularly in creating the dimensioning system and starting our RFID product line. I am pleased that he has continued the culture of constant innovation at Element ID”.
