Our Process

Datum means quality American manufacturing,
custom storage solutions, and turnkey installations.


1) Analysis

Understanding Your Needs

Unlike competitors that try to conform your project to their products, Datum’s designers combine extensive experience with cutting-edge technology to craft a well-rounded solution that puts your needs first.

2) Engineering & Design

Design By Datum

Design by Datum is our plan-first approach to creating your ideal storage solution.

In addition to providing detailed specifications and a quote, our designers produce 3D renderings to help you visualize how Datum’s storage system will fit into your workspace, presenting design options and configurations before you commit.

After finalizing the details of your new storage system with your dealer, our manufacturing team goes to work.

3) Manufacturing

Made in America

As an ISO 9001 manufacturer, Datum controls every step of the manufacturing process to create a high-quality, durable system that will last a lifetime. 97% of our products are made in York, Pennsylvania, providing nearly 200 jobs to American workers. This team of skilled craftsmen is a critical part of producing the high-quality products for which we’re known.

Teamwork and precision are key to our manufacturing process. Following patterns that are rigorously tested for exceptional ergonomics and safety, components are precisely cut from heavy-gauge steel with machinery that is accurate within thousandths of an inch. Before moving on to our welding lines, each piece passes through our Inspect Vision technology, which is capable of finding microscopic imperfections undetectable to the human eye.

Once the pieces have passed inspection, finished components are powder coated in the colors of your choice. Then your new system is inspected and fully assembled by our specially-trained technicians, ensuring perfect fit and finish before it is carefully packaged for delivery.

4) Installation

Total Customer Commitment

Upon delivery, a Datum certified installer will install your new system, testing each component and training your staff on its features and proper care. Even after your new storage system is installed, Datum is committed to protecting your storage investment.

Our commitment to you goes beyond providing exceptional storage solutions. We also take a responsible approach to protecting the health of our planet. Datum has developed best practices to reduce waste water, energy consumption, and the emission of harmful chemicals into our environment. Our recycling program alone prevents nearly 900 tons of raw materials from ending up in landfills each year.

Our focus on sustainability is evident in the materials we use too. Nearly 100% of the components in our storage systems are recyclable. Because of our commitment to the environment, Datum systems have been specified and LEED certified in government buildings.


5) Warranty


Datum’s lifetime warranty, the best in the industry,
offers you peace of mind for decades to come.

Your investment is also protected from becoming outdated. Since Datum storage systems are designed for flexibility, new components may be seamlessly integrated as your storage needs grow or change. And, of course, there’s Datum’s legendary commitment to customer service.

Datum is committed to helping you maximize the return on your investment by offering ongoing training and sharing best practices.
