COMMUNICATIONS specialist Drpgroup, of Hartlebury, has acquired Soho-based video production company Grosvenor Television.

The move sees Drpgroup’s London-based video team expand by six people, with the new members continuing to operate under the established Grosvenor brand and out of their Golden Square offices.

Grosvenor TV, established 26 years ago by managing director Des Good, specialises in video production for a range of high-profile clients, such as the Ministry of Defence.

“The Drpgroup can take Grosvenor to the next level," said Mr Good. "While remaining as a niche specialist production house we will have all the significant resources of the group to call upon, allowing us to manage much larger projects.”

Dale Parmenter, group managing director of Drpgroup, said: “This is a very exciting time for our video division. Grosvenor joining the Drp family will allow us to significantly bolster our offering in London.

"It’s vital that we allow our new team to grow the business, while maintaining a very personal style of customer relationship they have become renowned for.”

The acquisition was announced at the IVCA Livecom awards.

Drpgroup is an integrated full-service communications agency, designing and producing communications solutions globally.
