Datum announced its official launch of operations, aiming to help manufacturers bring complex hardware and products to market faster by solving for inefficiencies in the supply chain. The company’s team of experts can recognize and anticipate supply nuances across a range of advanced industries, they claim including aerospace, defense, automotive, medical devices, energy, motorsports, robotics and more. Datum was founded by a trio of former SpaceX supply chain experts, including CEO Robert Pakalski, COO Thomas Cobbs and Chief Supply Chain Officer Ryan Nagle. After they faced numerous roadblocks trying to source parts at SpaceX, they concluded that the supply chain for advanced manufacturing is riddled with inefficiencies, and even today’s most cutting-edge technology companies are using antiquated methods for procuring parts and hardware. “Datum has the knowledge, supply base, and operations necessary to source complex parts and hardware faster than any other procurement service provider on the market,” said Pakalski. “Rapid product development requires methodical supplier identification, secure communication, efficient quoting and diligent project management—all of which are imperative for sustainable business operations. We see value in having an even more strategic, streamlined procurement process for the overall supply chain.”
