Databac 50th anniversary

Databac celebrates 50th anniversary with new branding and website

ID solutions provider and card manufacturer Databac Group celebrated its 50th anniversary with a brand new look and revamped website. The company, founded in 1970, has grown from a local business offering laminated cards to an international organisation with a wealth of experience in all aspects of identification technologies.

To mark this milestone, Databac has developed a new logo and created a new website which better reflect the company as it is today – a dynamic, experienced and global player in the security industry.

“Databac’s growth has followed the evolution of the security market for half a century. The industry has little in common with the days of punch-hole Hollerith cards, which we made during our early days,” commented Databac CEO Charles Balcomb. “The world today is much more connected, with sophisticated solutions that are highly secure, personalisable and multi-functional. Our new look represents who we are now: a specialist partner for our clients, empowering them to manage their security needs through our identification solutions, with an emphasis on sustainability.”

The anniversary coincided with an unprecedented situation provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. To help manage the situation, Databac has incorporated new hygiene and safety solutions into its portfolio, ranging from anti-microbial card holders to touch-free biometrics with mask detection.

Databac’s evolution builds on its ability to adapt to a changing world. This agility is reflected in its dual business model of own manufacture with sourcing from qualified partners. The factory in Surrey, UK, produces bespoke, multi-functional cards, while the facility in Barcelona, Spain, has a bureau dedicated to card personalisation and encoding. These operations are complemented by identification systems, printers, readers, software and accessories from its global network of strategic partners.

The full range of solutions and services can be discovered on the new website,, boasting the fresh new look of the company’s rebrand.
