ecord financial results for Hartlebury agency

Agency DRP Group has posted record financial results for 2006. The Hartlebury-based presentation and communications company’s 2006 profit was up 200% on 2005 and it achieved a 75% increase in sales revenue. DRP Group managing director Dale Parmenter said the first six months of 2007 were the most successful in the company’s history. “Ever since our 25th anniversary year in 2005 and the reinvention of our business, we have continually invested in our equipment, people and premises, so it’s great news to see that this is all really paying off with our bottom line performance,” said Parmenter. “Increased revenues were achieved and new customers gained in all areas of the business, including events, interactive and video. Our efforts have been recognised in the past 18 months by winning many industry awards.” DRP Group, which also has an office in London, has invested more than £1.3m in its business since the start of 2005. Its investments include a post-production facility in London, studio, technical production area, and lighting and projection equipment for its events division. The agency has recruited 15 staff in the past year.
