Our Business – Devlin Electronics Limited
For over 30 years, the core business of Devlin Electronics has been the design and manufacture of custom keyboards and the supply of innovative electromechanical components.
The company operates in a wide range of markets and has been particularly successful supplying keyboards to retail banking, financial trading desk, newspaper, CCTV, industrial, health authority, mass-transit ticketing, public access kiosk, EPOS, in-vehicle computing and digital broadcasting. Through time, Devlin’s flexibility and innovative keyboard solutions have seen significant growth in overseas markets, with a wide customer base across Europe, Australasia and the USA, as well as maintaining a strong domestic presence. Clients have included the likes of IBM, National Westminster, HBoS, Reuters, Siemens, NCR, Phillips and Wincor Nixdorf, Hewlett Packard and the UK Post Office.
Devlin’s position as No.1 in the custom keyboard market has developed through a complete commitment to quality (currently accredited to IS0 9001-2000), and through utilising the latest engineering and production techniques. For example, Devlin’s advanced in-house keytop moulding and marking facilities provide virtually no limitation on keytop shapes, keytop colours and legends, no matter how complex the requirement. Extensive use is made of the latest CAD systems for all aspects of design and development, including 3D modelling techniques, allowing rapid prototyping and short product development cycles.
2002 saw the birth of Devlin Components division, capitalising on its reputation for distributing one of the broadest range of electromechanical components. The division has secured a number of exclusive franchise agreements, notably Cherry keyswitches and E3 programmable LCD switches. It has also expanded into the marketing of a select range of PSU’s and battery chargers.
In 2004, Devlin took over the European distribution of US company Datalux mobile computing products. This represented an opportunity for Devlin to explore new markets, supplying mobile trolley mounted PC’s for healthcare applications, in-vehicle computer systems and a number of industrial monitors and compact PC’s.
The Keyboard Care division was established and set up to support the repair and refurbishment of keyboards and other peripheral devices. This was enhanced in 2004 with the absortion of the Alphameric keyboard customers and estate.
