DP Medical Systems is celebrating after finishing its 30th year in business on a high.
The Surrey-based organisation saw turnover increase by 14 percent in 2017, reaching approximately £4.3million and marking the company’s third year of consecutive double digit growth.
The year also saw DP Medical’s hospital division reach £3million, more than twice its size in 2014, and the company’s service department achieved its highest turnover to date.
Rob Atkinson, managing director of DP Medical, said: “We’re thrilled to have finished 2017 – our 30th year in business – on such a high, with strong turnover figures.
“The last twelve months have seen some significant changes take place across our business, with our team making some bold decisions in response to shifts in the market.
“For example, in August, we made the decision to shift our attention in the dental magnification market away from loupes to more advanced systems, such as Global microscopes.
“Having the courage to make decisions such as this has paid off, with record revenue achieved at this year’s BIDA Dental Show. Coupled with our strong performance figures, this proves testimony to the fact that our team understands the markets we work in and that we are committed to responding to our customers’ changing requirements, as technology and the wider healthcare environment continues to evolve.”
During 2017, DP Medical was named as the exclusive UK suppliers of several esteemed products and devices, including MobileODT’s pioneering EVA System and world-leading medical imaging firm Xoran Technologies LLC’s xCAT and MiniCAT IQ CT scanners.
Rob – who has recently been named as the company’s new managing director – added: “It’s a real credit to the hard work and dedication of our team that such globally renowned names in the medical device world have chosen us as their exclusive UK suppliers.
“We look forward to starting our next year in business in a strong position as we keep on providing the exceptional service we’re known for.”
DP Medical Systems, which employs 22 people, sells ENT, dental, gynaecology and forensic medical equipment to the NHS and private users.
