Our paper dataloggers symbolize not just the forefront of technological evolution, but also echo our unwavering commitment to ecological sustainability. At Tapp, we’re not about business as usual.

Our vision: imagine a world where paper – an age-old, recyclable treasure – is the bedrock of cutting-edge electronics. A world where innovation doesn’t compromise the environment, but complements it.

Our mission: for us, paper isn’t merely a carrier of thoughts; we champion it as the ideal foundation for electronics. Our state-of-the-art paper dataloggers embody not just tech sophistication but our profound eco-devotion. A notable mention? Our choice of paper, sourced from agricultural waste instead of conventional wood, solidifying our ethos of innovation and eco-responsibility.

Guided by the ‘end-of-life’ ethos, we ensure our creations return gracefully to the earth, post their prime. We aim to be more than a tech entity; we envision a transformative wave, nudging enterprises towards eco-conscious datalogging.
