"With the experience and expertise of the team at drp in digital projects and live events and their established track record in video, this is a very beneficial move for us all."

Drp group CEO Dale Parmenter said: "We are thrilled to have HMX on board as part of the drp team and we are looking forward to expanding our capacity and extending our capability as a business, helping to support our mission statement of being the company of choice.
