In 2016 drp increased their turnover by more than £2million as they acquired 16 new clients, adding an increase on their turnover from £14.5 million to £16.6 million. By the end of 2017, drp are aiming to reach for a £21 million turnover and by 2020 their target is to reach a £30 million turnover, especially now that they have Penguins on board, which could increase the figure to £35 million.

This year, the digital team has expanded by 10 new people, followed by technical services, communications, and video, all with seven new starters each. Drp also gained a further 22 employees with the latest acquisition of Penguins, the incentive events agency based in Windsor.

Drp’s CEO Dale Parmenter said: "I’m very delighted to see year on year the growth of the company and the newest acquisition of Penguins being a drp company. We have been a part of some remarkable projects, winning and being shortlisted for numerous awards already this year. We are continuing to move in the right direction and I’m confident to enter 2018 with our expanding customer base. The drp team is feeling motivated and energised for what’s ahead."
