It started as a collaboration between George Spyrou, Cyprus, and Edy Petrosel, Romania, in an effort to investigate business opportunities in Romania.
The initial concept was to bring in Romania technology companies and create a representation and distribution network. Also to enter into manufacturing, export and import of products and raw materials.
In 1992 an opportunity to represent and promote a pharmaceutical company from Cyprus (Medochemie) gave the start to the pharmaceutical and medical aspect of Datacom.
For this target the scientific department was formed, to study necessary Pharma products for the Romanian market and generate the necessary documentation for the registration of new pharma products on the market, in compliance to the Romanian legislation.
In 1993 Datacom added to the portfolio the distribution of Remedica and succeeded to win tenders in excess of 2 mil USD in the pharma sector serving also the Republic of Moldavia.
At the same time, the industrial section of Datacom was developing with export of various products (pipes, castings, flanges) to countries like Italy, France, Morocco, Cyprus and others. A manufacturing facility was established in Galati city in Romania, producing connection Flanges and welded pipes, which were mainly exported to clients in Europe and Africa.
The initial purpose of data technology was not forgotten and in 1993 received the representation of ASK Group with Database management (INGRESS) which was introduced to the major mobile telecom company Conex. ASK Group was at that time acquired by Computer Associates and Datacom became the regional representative.
This development created the necessity to expand and create spin-offs to take over the various sectors of activity, so the Datacom group started to take shape.
Datacom International S.A. was formed in the centre with Datacom srl, Data Network Associates, Data Cad, Ergoman, EastFarmEdica, Datacom Global Med and Global med Pharmacies, as group of companies.
These companies were managed by professionals, each having independent financial budget, at the same time supporting each other, under the supervision and consultancy of George Spyrou.
In the following years investments were made in real estate and participation in construction companies, All Plan and Temelion Project were formed.
By that time the need for services gave rise to Ascent group and One Consulting which started by giving services to the group and then to external clients, in Project Management, Accounting, Legal, Human Resources, Trainings, Business Coaching and Development Consulting.
In 2006 a new company, Lifeline Services, was formed in the Biotech field of procuring biological samples at the birth of a child, and processing them to obtain Cellular Therapy Products (CTP) and cryopreserve them, to treat several critical ailments in the future.
The group has experience and expertise in many areas among which:
Medical, Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Engineering, Construction, Real Estate Urban Planning, Software, Communications, Data Security, Project Planning and Management, Human Resources, Training … etc.
