Company background

Databac is a specialist manufacturer and supplier of complete ID solutions. Since its inception in 1970, the company’s focus has been squarely on the identification of people and products:

  • ID cards and tags

    Databac manufactures bespoke cards and tags which can be used with automated systems like access control and data collection. These can incorporate magnetic stripe, smart / contactless chip and other technologies and can be made from environmentally-friendly materials. Databac also provides systems to print, personalise and encode cards, while hundreds of accessories are available to wear, protect and store them.

  • Software development

    Databac develops its own Windows-based software, Dataimage, for applications including visitor control and event registration.

  • Biometric ID solutions

    Databac has a select range of advanced biometric systems, offering secure, card-less identification for time and attendance, access control and building automation.

Since 1984, Databac has been manufacturing cards incorporating reading technologies for use in a host of applications, including access control, time recording, library, automatic data collection, cashless vending, loyalty and membership. For this purpose, the company works closely with international OEMs and systems designers to ensure its cards’ compatibility with reading equipment specifications.

Databac is a privately-owned company, based in Surrey, UK, with a Southern European sales office based in Barcelona, Spain. Its international customer base is serviced directly and through a worldwide network of approved resellers and business partners.

Security is clearly a priority. Databac holds clearances for the production of cards by the MoD and the Stationery Office (formerly HMSO). Every order or enquiry is treated with the strictest confidence. Databac’s employees are vetted, while access control is in operation 24 hours a day. In addition, the company operates a quality management system under ISO9001:2008.

It is also ISO14000:2004-certified for environmental management and holds the Carbon Smart award for efforts in reducing its impact on the environment.

While rapidly expanding, Databac remains a friendly, approachable organisation. Working in partnership with its customers, Databac can offer the knowledge, and experience, to deliver the ID solution that’s just right for the application.
