Creative communications agency drp has announced the acquisition of HMX Corporate Communication Ltd, the Buckinghamshire-based agency. This acquisition extends the reach of the business and increases the total team count to over 280.
HMX is a video, digital media, and live events business with a strong professional services and high-tech client base – servicing clients in the Big 4 accounting firms, major consultancies, key law firms and high tech businesses such as Bosch Siemens Homecare, Perkin Elmer and GE Healthcare.
Tim Horrox (pictured centre), managing director at HMX, commented: “This is an exciting transition for us at HMX and I am hugely excited about where this partnership can take us. With the experience and expertise of the team at drp in digital projects and live events, and their established track record in video, this is a very beneficial move for us all.”
Dale Parmenter (pictured left), Group CEO of drp, added: “We are thrilled to have HMX on board as part of the drp team and we are looking forward to expanding our capacity and extending our capability as a business, helping to support our mission statement of being the company of choice.
