DVS (Cardiff)

Origins

Motivations were originally to offer its own brand CCTV products at branded household name quality but at a lower cost. This has evolved over the previous eleven years to become a distributor of branded products but with a bias towards emerging companies in the Far East and the USA rather than traditional brands. The challenges in the early years were being able to attract the quality of staff required to enable growth and take the Company forward at the rate required.

Success Factor

At DVS, the management is very proud of the team and feels they offer the best pre-sales and post-sales in its industry backed up by the best support team across the company. The commitment of the team to the company, excellent retention of quality staff and the fantastic working environment means that customers and suppliers alike receive a positive impression at all times. DVS has also accumulated what it considers to be the highest quality manufacturing partners available globally, which ensures that DVS always offer the best products at the best price to suit the UK marketplace. Finally, DVS has developed a very fresh and modern style as a result of their innovative marketing that has continually made DVS stand out from the completion.

The Future

DVS has seen very large organic growth in the last three years and now has 25 staff and a projected turnover of in excess of £10m for the current financial year. To facilitate continued growth, it is continually recruiting the very best talent from its industry and beyond. DVS is currently in the process of purchasing a building large enough to support sustainable growth to £20m over the coming 5 years and provide an impressive headquarters for a company of that size. Growth will continue to be organic as the founders wish to maintain the team spirit as DVS continued to grow. There is also the possibility of expanding export sales.
