Photo Data was formed in 1969 supplying precision Photo Reductions and Contacts from hand taped circuit artworks to the PCB industry in the UK. Step and Repeat films for PCB panels was added soon after.

In 1984 Photo Data expanded into Laser Photo Plotting as the industry evolved from taped artworks to CAD designs.

1996 saw Roving Probe Bare Board Testing added to the list of services continuing the commitment to PCB services.

In 2005 Photo Data acquired the manufacturing business of JD Photo-Tools, one of the leading suppliers of photomask services to the MEMS and BioMed industries and was renamed JD Photo Data.

Established since 1988, JD Photo-Tools shared the same service philosophy, customer service, flexibility, with speed of response and dedication to customer requirements.

The acquisition of JD Photo-Tools further strengthened the company’s position in the marketplace and expanded the services to include High Resolution Photo Plotting and Photomasks on film and glass.

Central to the success of any organisation are the people within it and the skills and core values they possess. JD Photo Data recognises this and is fully committed to the effective management and development of our employees.
