New year reflections

DP Medical Blog, Company News Leave a comment

As the new year gets underway, Rob Atkinson, managing director of DP Medical, takes a moment to reflect on the last 12 months and look ahead at what’s to come for the company.

 

It’s fair to say nobody could have expected the events of 2020. There is no disputing it was one of the most challenging years in living memory and, as the coronavirus pandemic continues, it is important to acknowledge the incredible amount of work our friends and colleagues across the NHS and the wider healthcare industry have been doing to help the nation get through this difficult time.

 

For us at DP Medical, it has been a unique year to date and I’m proud to say the DP team has really pulled together to ride out the challenges that have come our way.

 

We ended 2020 as our best year yet, with record turnover and a number of landmark installations under our belts, as well as extensive growth within our service division, too.

 

Our presence in the speech and language market continued to grow as we asserted our position as a leader in the supply of ENT equipment and devices and, as we move into 2021, we look forward to growing in this area even more.

 

As the exclusive British suppliers of the Heinemann Treatment Unit, we saw strong levels of interest for the units during 2020, as well as our renowned XION kits, completing installations of both at sites including the newly opened OneWelbeck Hospital, London, and Nobles Hospital on the Isle of Man.

 

The year also saw us achieve fantastic growth in Ireland, exceeding our targets.

 

And, we were proud to grow our team, appointing new engineer, Damian Sewell, and welcoming back territory manager Jonny Depledge, both of whom are covering the Midlands/North Wales region. Our head count now stands at 24 people, nationwide.

 

Looking ahead into 2021 it is difficult to predict what’s to come. At the time of writing, England is under national lockdown restrictions and so we as a healthcare industry have more hurdles to overcome, together.

 

In the coming months we will be continuing to grow the work we are doing in ENT, and look to expand the XION brand further within the Theatre and Gynaecology sectors. We also hope to expand our team even more, particularly in Ireland and at our head office in Chessington, too, which we expanded in 2020 to increase our office and warehouse space.

 

In 2021, we will be looking to set up a ‘showroom’ within this new space, which will give us the opportunity to invite customers along to see some of our demo kit and also hold courses in the future.

 

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of DP Medical’s loyal customers for their ongoing support over the last 12 months, and our team of employees, who have all played a vital part in helping us weather the storm and achieve our best year yet.

We look forward to keeping you all updated with new developments, please make sure you’re following us on Twitter and LinkedIn for the very latest news.


COVID-19 UPDATE

During these unprecedented times, we would like to take this opportunity to reassure our customers and partners that we are still open for business.

 

We continue to closely monitor developments surrounding COVID-19 in order to follow Government advice and have been taking steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our customers, suppliers and employees, including travel restrictions (both internationally and domestically), reviewing business continuity plans, not attending events and working to implement visitor guidelines for those coming to our offices.

 

We know this uncertain situation remains very dynamic and we will continue to provide updates as things change, but we are confident in our preparation and contingency planning.

 

Throughout this time, we remain committed to providing the excellent service that our customers have come to expect of us here at DP Medical and thank you for your ongoing support.

 


DP Medical enjoys another year of growth

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

2019 proved to be another record-breaking year for leading medical supplies company, DP Medical Systems.

 

The Surrey-based organisation celebrated its fifth consecutive year of increasing turnover rising up to £4.9m in 2019.

 

In addition, each division of the company including dental, hospital and services, has grown substantially over the period and increasing profits has allowed the company to embark on a number of exciting developments over the past 12 months including investing in more demonstration equipment to meet demand, opening up an office in northern England and establishing a dedicated company in Ireland.

 

Rob Atkinson, managing director of DP Medical, said: “We’re really pleased to have continued to hit our ambitious growth targets during 2019. This has been achieved despite the backdrop of recent  economic uncertainty but our business has robust plans in place which has allowed us to grow not just here in the UK but also most notably in Ireland and also across other parts of Europe and the middle east which has been extremely impressive.

 

“Alongside our HQ in Surrey, we now have an office in Stockport, Greater Manchester which has given us another option when it comes to where staff can be based from and improved the customer experience for our clients based away from the south of England who need repairs or have further customer care needs.

 

“But our expansion hasn’t stopped there. We also set up a company in Ireland, based in Dublin, to help us build our business within both the Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland markets ensuring we enhance our sales and service coverage to our Irish customers and seek out further opportunities so we can continue to grow and develop.

 

“In addition, we have worked on some really exciting and prestigious projects over the last 12 months including the world renowned UCLH dental hospital in London and with the speech and language therapy sector where we have seen demand for our XION products really take off.

 

“It’s a great start to 2020 which is set to be another good year for us as we look to increase our staff numbers, build on the exceptional service we’re already known for and move into new markets within the healthcare sector such as theatres and hysteroscopy clinics.

 

“Our dedicated team continue to go above and beyond for our customers, and I am really proud of each and every one of them as they have all played their part in making DP Medical the company it is today.”

 

DP Medical Systems, which employs 22 people, sells ENT, dental, gynaecology and forensic medical equipment to the NHS and private users.
