This past Friday, some of our team attended the Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce business awards. It’s a yearly event that highlights the incredible businesses that we have here on the Island. A well attended event of over 400 people, it is a chance for companies to celebrate success, innovation and growth.

Last year we were fortunate enough to win 3 awards at the event, including the prestigious Business of the Year award. It was an incredible privilege to represent the Island as one of the most successful businesses of the year.

This year we were nominated in 2 categories; Employer of the Year and Growth Business of the Year. In both categories we had stiff competition with the likes of PC Consultants, Vestas Blades UK and Wight Coaches, but today we are proud to announce that we won the Growth Business of the Year award after showing fantastic year-on-year growth. It was a fantastic moment for our team to be recognised for growing the business sustainably. We have increased the number of employees at Datum by 50% and marked record growth and turnover in 2024, which has led to further investment into our own product range.

“Our recent growth has impacted across the organisation in a very positive way because it enabled us to look at our system in a different way. We now have a number of new product releases lined up for 2024 across different industries that all look extremely exciting for us”

Michael Irons, Datum Electronics Managing Director
