Cardwave was formed in 2004 to focus exclusively on providing a data programming service to OEM customers and memory card manufacturers. The company grew quickly and established itself as a pioneer in this new industry, setting new standards in service excellence.

There have been many milestones along the way including accreditations for various quality standards (ISO9001/14001), plus winning awards for business performance and being recognised for charitable and environmental work.

The Future

In today’s technology-led world, flash memory is at the heart of many products. It is one of the fastest growing sectors in the semi-conductor industry as data is created, shared and stored everywhere. With so many uses and applications and with plenty of companies reselling and claiming to manufacture these products, knowing who to work with can be an issue.

Cardwave will continue to support all form-factors of removable media but we are also embracing embedded and Cloud technologies, plus supporting customers with their BYOD and remote working strategies. Data security and restricted access to confidential data is already a concern and no doubt better solutions will be created with the introduction of secure elements on removable media. Any customer needing these products will be pleased to know that this is central to Cardwave’s growth plans.
