Solent LEP powers Datum Electronic Growth…
Datum Electronics is world-leading manufacturer & supplier of torque and shaft power measurement tools and equipment worldwide. Aimed at enhancing product performance and optimising energy efficiency, Datum torque sensors and shaft power meters have been successfully deployed in a range of industries & applications all over the world.
As a direct result of the Solent LEP grant, Datum Electronics was able to move to bigger facilities to increase the size of design, marketing & product support teams, to meet the continuously increasing demand for our torque sensor products. The new facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, to facilitate the company’s research & development capabilities, expand our marketing & support teams and extend our product range.
Following our successful move to the new premises, in the past 12 months Datum Electronics has grown the team, employed local representatives in several countries and heavily invested in the research & development of a new ground-breaking product for the marine market.
Solent LEP Growth Hub is a great initiative to help small and medium sized enterprises in the Solent by enabling them to expand teams, improve production facilities and facilitate innovative products and services to the market.
They’ve provided invaluable support to Datum Electronics and with their help we have been able to grow our business and expand to new territories.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Solent LEP Growth Hub to other businesses who have the desire and potential to growth their business to a new level.
