An integrated u-blox® NEOM8N GPS/GLONASS receiver provides robust GIS capabilities.

Configure and accessorize the Algiz 8X to work for you
Customizable options for Ethernet, serial (UART) or barcode reading allow the Algiz 8X to conform to your specific requirements. For developers, the Algiz 8X goes even farther — docking pins and a specialized “backpack” mean that your team can customize additional capabilities and proprietary creations. Vehicle cradles and mounts, multi-slot chargers and multiple carrying cases allow you to outfit your team for maximum efficiency.

Handheld: Rugged Computers for tough Environments

Manufacturer of Rugged Computers
Handheld is a privately-held manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, including rugged tablets and PDAs. Handheld is one of the fastest growing companies in the sector. Together with our resellers around the globe, we form partnerships that offer products that withstand the toughest conditions and solutions to get the job done.

Subsidiaries and Partners
The Handheld headquarters is based in western Sweden, in the town of Lidköping. We have subsidiaries in Finland, USA, United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, The Netherlands and in Australia. Having these remote branches helps Handheld maintain a close relationship with and offer better service to our customers. To truly fulfill our goals and vision of being a global company with a local mindset, we have built up an extensive partner network with more than 1,000 authorized partners covering all territories.

The begining of Handheld
Our beginning goes back to the birth of the rugged device market. Handheld’s founder, Jerker Hellström, helped pioneer rugged computer manufacturing while part of the British company Husky Computers Ltd. In 1997, Jerker and some colleagues acquired the Scandinavian division of Husky Computers and founded Handheld Group. The company continued to distribute and market Husky products with a focus on the Scandinavian market.
In 2003, a new ownership structure was set in place when Thomas Löfblad joined Jerker as a co-owner. With ambitions of building a leading company in the worldwide rugged industry, Thomas and Jerker formed a new, two-fold strategy: to expand globally and to move the company from a distribution business model to a manufacturing model.

Resellers and Distribution
Handheld’s channel-centric approach focuses on building a strong worldwide network of resale and distribution partners. Numerous local subsidiaries support our growth by offering physical locations in closer proximity to our partners and end users. We established our first subsidiary in Finland in 2007. The U.S. office was founded in 2008, followed by new subsidiaries in Italy and the Netherlands in 2009, and in Sydney, Australia in 2011. In early 2012, Handheld acquired assets from distributor Latschbacher/TimbaTec in Germany and Switzerland and subsequently started Handheld Germany and Handheld Swiss. Later that year, the U.K. subsidiary was born.
The vision to build best-in-class rugged computers using an outsourced approach has come to fruition in our lean and efficient Virtual Production Model. According to this development model, all specifications and industrial design elements are created in-house, while engineering and manufacturing are outsourced. Today, we have manufacturing partners in Taiwan, South Korea, Malaysia and China.

Great achievement and success
Handheld’s journey so far has been marked by great achievement and success. Our organization has won numerous awards for growth and excellence, and we continually attract top talent to our management team, which is made up of some of the most experienced rugged experts in the world.
From our founding to the present, we’ve built our legacy upon pioneering new methods, expanding our reach and producing the very best rugged computers in the world.
