OverviewSuggest Edit

The company has operated exclusively in these areas since it was founded in 1982. Well over 200 man-years experience has been built up in product design, consultancy and project development, covering all areas of this industry. The available expertise covers both hardware and software (driver) design and development.


Datapath is large enough to undertake substantial projects, but small enough to offer an unrivalled level of service and support, which is achieved by an accessible, customer-focused staff.


The maxim "Excellence by Design" describes the philosophy of Datapath, and over the years this reputation has attracted many major blue-chip companies and institutions to use our expertise as the best way to solve their specialised display problems.


In 2007 Datapath attracted new investment from Foresight Group. Whilst the founders retained the majority of the shares they recognised the need to invest in broadening the management team and the product portfolio. 2008 has seen the appointment of three new directors to the board; a strengthening of the technical team and a significant release of new products.


Datapath is a privately held company, with a head office in Derby UK, plus sales and support offices in USA, France, Japan and China.
