A History of Innovation
Data Panel Corporation was founded in 1958 as Transistor Electronics Corporation (TEC). TEC developed a line of pushbutton switches and indicators that supported the emerging computer industry, as well as performing significant work on the development of the personal computer.
In 1991, the Haulton family purchased Data Panel, and under the leadership of Jon Haulton, shifted its focus to medical and automotive markets and began developing custom electronic devices such as hand controls, switch products, switch and display panels, as well as keyboards and graphics.
Throughout our evolution as a company, there has remained a strong common philosophy: to design and produce products that fulfill unique electronic distribution and control applications. Building on our rich history of innovation, Data Panel continues to improve the form and function of old technology by applying state-of-the-art designs and technologies in new and unique ways.
