Stratford-based DCS Group report strong growth

Ian Hughes 26th Jan, 2017

STRATFORD-based health and beauty company DCS Group achieved double digit growth in 2016.

Sales increased to £210 million – up from £185.7 million the previous year – a 13 per cent increase.

The DCS Manufacturing division achieved £8.2million and was up four per cent.

Export sales increased by a quarter to £19.3million with the effects of improved exchange rates helping in the latter part of the year.

DCS plans to move around 220 staff to Noral Way in Banbury in April to a new 25 acre site which is three times larger than its current Stratford site in Timothy Bridge Road.

Founder and CEO Denys Shortt said: “We are obviously delighted with the 2016 results but remain focused on growing further.

“Twenty-three years of consistent growth is quite an unusual record and we intend to make it 24.

“Our strategic plan is focussed on growing all retail channels. Consumers are choosing different ways to buy their health and beauty brands and in different stores. We are good at adapting to changes very quickly.

“We are so excited about the new site at Banbury – it will be an awesome new headquarters for DCS and is conveniently adjacent to the M40.”
