Full service, Worcestershire-based communications agency, drpgroup, has reported £16m in turnover with a net profit of £1.8m for 2013, making it the agency’s most successful year to date. The £16m turnover outstripped the 2012 result by £6m.
Drpgroup underwent a number of developments in 2013 to improve performance, including opening its purpose-built studio production complex in the Midlands midway through the year and taking on 35 new team members in 2013. The company delivered a number of large-scale events throughout the year, growing new relationships with ENRC and JCB and delivering multi-lingual UK and international-based events.
The video team at drpgroup continued to deliver new augmented reality projects and regular communications as the digital team developed more mobile, responsive and app-based solutions. The agency also transformed its summer conference programme to 15 days of training, using the new event facilities at its 212 studios headquarters.
The group announced the results to its team at the Crowne Plaza Salzburg. As a reward for the hard work throughout the year, the agency chartered a flight to Austria before embarking on a programme of activities at the Flachau resort which included off-road Segway driving, quad biking and alpine roller coaster. The main conference was run at the Crowne Plaza and was followed by the annual drpgroup Brilliance awards.
“This year we’ve seen a lot of confidence return to the communications industry and all of our divisions have been busy,” says MD of drpgroup, Dale Parmenter. “The team’s hard work throughout the year has ensured we’ve delivered not only great results for the drpgroup, but for our clients as well.
“2014 won’t be without its challenges but with the team growing as it has done, our training and development programme continuing and some more exciting developments in coming weeks, I think we’ll be well placed to deliver a great 2014 for our team and our clients,” he adds.
