An award-winning West Midlands firm has its sights set on expanding both domestically and internationally on the back of a prestigious business mission.
MCP Consulting provides asset management consulting and training services to a bluechip client base and has recently enjoyed a reception with the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
The visit comes as a result of the firm winning The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2016 earlier this year.
MCP Consulting has had its headquarters at the University of Warwick Science Park’s Blythe Valley Innovation Centre near Solihull since 2004 and is targeting further growth.
Managing director, Peter Gagg, said: “We’ve come a long way since the launch of the company when we started out with just five staff back in 1987.
“We now employ consultants across the globe and last year we grew turnover to £2.5 million, and are on track to £3 million this year.
“There’s no doubt that winning the Queen’s Awards has helped to elevate our reputation, both in the UK and overseas.
“It was a great honour for everyone associated with the company to have been recognised for our contribution to international trade and it’s important for us to continue to capitalise on this success.”
MCP Consulting also has offices in the USA, Abu Dhabi, Germany and Portugal and counts the likes of Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, Kraft, and Coca-Cola among its clients.
The firm exports to more than 50 countries worldwide, including the UAE where it is leading on a major change management programme at Dubai International Airport.
Mark Homer, centre manager at the University of Warwick Science Park’s Blythe Valley Innovation Centre, added: “MCP Consulting has been working with many of the world’s most well-known companies and brands for some time, supporting them to improve and be more efficient.
“We’re delighted to see the company continuing to achieve strong success, on the back of winning the Queen’s Award, and look forward to supporting them with their on-going growth plans.
“Their award was part of a wider success story across the University of Warwick Science Park as two other tenants picked up Queen’s Awards and another company which has benefitted from support through the Science Park was also honoured.
“Innovative firms do benefit from being based at the University of Warwick Science Park because of the flexible space, the high-quality environment, the support available and the general atmosphere of being in amongst like-minded companies.
“The Queen’s Award successes are testament to that.”
