Family-owned & operated since 1968.
History of Datum
Datum Storage Solutions® has been designing and manufacturing filing, storage and office furniture solutions since 1968. What originally began as a simple, desktop organizer business became a worldwide manufacturer and supplier of storage solutions for every application!
Frank Potter started the business in the basement of his Long Island home. Initially known as Desk Top File Co., the name was later changed to Filing Systems Inc.
“Datum” was added in 1983.
Committed to Quality
Thanks to customer loyalty and a commitment to quality, Datum outgrew its original New York facility and moved to a 40,000 sq. ft. plant located in York, Pennsylvania in 1992.
In 2001, the company built a new 120,000 square foot facility at our present location to accommodate continued growth fueled by the addition of new product lines. These new product lines broadened our focus from filing systems to complete office, archival, classroom and weapons storage solutions and the company became Datum Storage Solutions to reflect this transition.
Family-Owned & Operated
To date, Datum has more than 40,000 storage installations in its portfolio.
Datum Storage Solutions is still proudly owned and operated by the Potter family.
