Commenting on the results, TTP’s CEO Peter Taylor said, “We are pleased to be able to report such strong results in the current economic climate. They are a testament to the commitment and hard work of our staff. The results secure our position as the leading member of the cluster of technology development companies in the Cambridge region and justify our belief in remaining an independent employee controlled company. With the recent acquisition by our employee share ownership plan of the 3i stake in the business, the greatest beneficiary of the increase in profitability is our workforce and we believe that this is a major factor in our success.”
TTP was founded at the end of 1987 during the recessionary crash. Its growth over the years has been financed from retained profits. The company operates an internal share market and has a policy of facilitating the recycling of shares from leavers to the new generation of staff.
Looking to the future, Taylor says, “We are by no means complacent in the current climate as it is without doubt very uncertain. However, we believe that the quality of our staff and their commitment will help us to come through this period and emerge even stronger.” He concludes, “We firmly believe there is a strong demand for the high level of technology innovation skills that we offer to the global market and that the brightest people will continue to want to work in a business where they can influence what products and services are going to be available in the future and share in the rewards.”
