OUR Story

DDC Engineering Solutions Ltd was founded in 2000 by Dean and Lisa Whitbrook.

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 has 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.

“When I started with DDC over 4 years ago I was amazed with the team spirit, how everyone pulls together and helps each other. The teams dedication to providing quality and doing as they say makes us stand out from the crowd.”

Kerrie Jones

Operations Manager
