20 Years and Counting…
DDC was founded by both Dean and Lisa Whitbrook back in April 2000.
Over the years they have grown the company to what it is today, developing some great friendships, overcoming difficult challenges and most of all working hard to accomplish some exceptional achievements.
Beginning life in a single office in Willenhall, in the heart of the West Midlands, DDC soon grew and relocated to larger offices within Wolverhampton Science Park, and then, in 2013, took the bold decision to move to even larger dedicated premises in Wolverhampton, near to the new JLR (Jaguar Land Rover) factory.
Since 2004, Dean and Lisa have committed to establishing DDC as a leading supplier and contractor in the highways and trunk road drainage data management and surveying industry, initially as a sub-contractor building up an enviable list of key blue-chip clients, then progressively moving forward to securing primary contractor status, with both the English and Welsh Highways authorities, where DDC continues to complete work to a distinguished standard worthy of the Highways Agency’s own database requirements.
Here at DDC, all the staff are like one big family who work hard and celebrate often when the time is right.
Last week was the 20-year anniversary of this great company that we have all grown to love. To show our appreciation we organised a group Zoom party on Friday afternoon as a surprise for both Dean and Lisa. Sharing a video of the memories we have had both in the office and on site and messages from the staff to thank them personally for making DDC a pleasure to work within.
As we are all working from home during this difficult time, the celebrations were limited, but the DDC family were in high spirits to keep the party going virtually. Whilst we couldn’t be together physically, we were all there in spirit to express our gratitude.
We can’t wait to get back in the office and celebrate even more!
Thank you to everyone at DDC for making this company what it is today, 20 years is a fantastic achievement in business and for this we are extremely proud!
“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.”
Here’s to the next 20!
