Mark Sheldrick, Managing Director of DPM, Westerham, Kent, the leading supplier of used press products, has maintained his position in the PrintWeek Power 100 for 2012, appearing at number 83 in the list of the industry’s great and good. This year’s listing was announced at a charity evening at Stationers’ Hall in central London.
Having appeared in a similar position in the chart for 2011, Mr Sheldrick was delighted to be representing the industry’s used equipment sector in the list yet again. The PrintWeek write-up on the DPM MD sums up his business focus:
“With so much talk of depleted numbers at this year’s Drupa, the show could have been a difficult one for secondhand dealer DPM. But, thanks to owner Sheldrick’s innovative, global and forward-thinking approach, and a sustained focus on marketing, the stand was apparently never empty. “Mark’s style is very forthright and decisive,” says one colleague. “We always have a clear idea of where the company is going, and he’s not afraid to embrace new technologies.” When he’s not thinking about how to keep DPM moving forward, Sheldrick can be found spending time with his teenage daughter or admiring his framed Chelsea football shirt, which takes pride of place at DPM HQ.”

DPM’s company philosophy is based on quality, integrity and, above all, honesty. As a business DPM doesn’t believe in false economy when buying or selling: it will pay a fair price for equipment, and expect a fair price when selling, no more, no less.
DPM was not established for the short term. The aim of the company is to be recognised as the best and this can only be achieved by conducting successful, honest business over a long period of time.
The company’s experienced sales team have close contact with a great many businesses worldwide meaning that they are often the first to hear of equipment when it becomes available. DPM use a purpose-built computer system developed to search and locate equipment within minutes of receiving a press enquiry. This system is updated hourly with new equipment for sale and currently has over 20,000 items available worldwide.
Best known for buying, selling and installing used sheetfed offset-litho printing presses, DPM is currently expanding the business to encompass the handling of pre-owned digital printing equipment, as well as the distribution of new post-press equipment, with the UK agency for GW guillotines.
With a set of international contacts envied by other used equipment suppliers, and strong relationships with all major printing press suppliers, DPM has built a truly worldwide business that continues to expand.
