Nexus GB Named as Exclusive Datakey Distributor in Germany, Austria and Switzerland

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (Sept. 17, 2015) – ATEK Access Technologies has named Nexus GB Ltd. as its exclusive distributor of Datakey products in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The firm currently distributes Datakey rugged portable memory solutions throughout the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia.

“For nearly 30 years, the Datakey product line has allowed us to meet customer demand within the UK for high quality, rugged, portable memory solutions,” said Michael Barrett, managing director of Nexus. “We’re honoured to be named the exclusive Datakey distributor in these new countries and look forward to growing the business with ATEK’s proven Datakey technology.”

Nexus has provided millions of Datakey devices for manufacturers across the UK and Ireland for data logging, cashless vending, security, access control and many other applications. Its customers include leading manufacturers in the defense, transportation, medical and communications industries.

“Our long-standing relationship with Nexus has helped us build a significant presence in the UK for the Datakey brand, and we are excited to expand our relationship into new countries,” said Sherri McDaniel, president of ATEK Access Technologies. “Their expertise in Europe will help us meet the growing demand from manufacturers throughout the region for a robust memory solution for security and data transfer applications in embedded systems.”

The Datakey product line features portable memory devices that utilize solid over-molded construction, industrial-temperature electronics, redundant electrical contacts and harsh-environment, high cycle-life receptacles. Additionally, Datakey products have a proven history of long-term availability that consumer memory products, like USB flash drives and SD cards, lack. Since 1976, Datakey products have been the preferred portable memory solution by many of the world’s largest defense, medical and commercial OEMs.
