Document Network Services celebrates 25 years in business

Managed services provider Document Network Services (DNS) is celebrating 25 years in business.

















The business first started trading in a small office space on Macklin Street, Derby and now takes up residence at an innovation centre on Pride Park.

Over the years, managing director Darren Marsh has grown the business from solely selling printers and copiers to nationally solving business process problems for organisations - by supplying them with managed print, IT, document management and communications. 

He said: “It’s crazy to think we have reached 25 years. It only feels like yesterday when I was sat behind my very sparse desk in Macklin Street. It’s a fantastic achievement for me and the DNS team and wouldn’t have been possible without them. I’m very proud of where the company is today.”

Projects manager Tracey Morley is the longest serving employee at DNS. She said “I have been employed by DNS for the past 17 years, which I realise is a long time, but in my opinion, if something isn’t broken then don’t fix it!

"The various job roles I have undertaken has meant that I have never felt bored or unfulfilled. Darren has made me feel like part of the family and I think that is key for retaining your employees. I know that I am appreciated and that gives me the drive to work hard work and the willingness to go that extra mile”

The company is celebrating its anniversary using social media to pay homage to the past 25 years, and posting a number of "throwback" images each Thursday. DNS hopes this will encourage customers and suppliers to share their memories over the years.

Alongside this activity, the team will be collectively running, swimming, cycling, jogging and walking 2500km throughout April to improve mental and physical wellbeing and raise money for me&dee charity

The company will also be hosting a virtual wine tasting event to say thank you to its customers base for their continued support.
