Every rugged computer delivered by JLT is manufactured in Sweden and comes with a standard 3-Year Limited Warranty. The computers are also available with an optional 3- or 5-year "No-Questions Asked" JLT:Care Service Agreement.
JLT has been at the forefront of rugged design since its inception in 1994, when it started building electronic control systems for the Swedish forestry industry. Today the company is selling its rugged computers under the JLT brand as well as being the Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) for several leading logistic and transport IT companies. On of these companies is DAP Technologies in the USA.
"With the technology from JLT Mobile Computers, we have been delivering rugged computers to many global blue chip companies," said Eric Miller, VP of Sales at DAP Technologies. "The JLT computers are appreciated by our customers for their high-performance and reliability."
