Farnborough is a popular location for businesses – it has significant defence industry heritage, a rich history as the birthplace of aviation and is a hub of innovation. Because of this, it has an excellent connectivity and power infrastructure, and renowned out-of-town secure business park locations.

One of these is Cody Technology Park, the high security business park we selected when we launched Datum in 2012.
