DRK’s Teamwork Philosophy

A commitment to teamwork is crucial in the world of sports and the dynamic field of lighting. At DRK, we understand that the success of our endeavours relies on the collaborative efforts of our talented and diverse team.


Our collective experience of over 200 years in the lighting industry forms the bedrock of our successes. Each team member brings unique skills and knowledge to the table. We recognise and value the individual expertise of each member, fostering an environment where ideas are shared and creativity is celebrated.

In the spirit of  NBA legend Bill Russell’s philosophy, “No pussycats, please,” we embrace tenacity as a core mantra. This approach drives us to tackle challenges head-on with determination and resilience. Having this philosophy prominently displayed on the walls of our Chessington headquarters serves as a constant reminder of the mindset we embody as a team.

The world of lighting is ever-evolving, and to stay at the forefront of innovation, continuous learning and skill development are imperative. We not only respect each other’s existing expertise but also actively support the growth and development of new skills. This commitment to personal and professional development not only benefits individual team members but also enhances the collective strength of our team.


At DRK, we view teamwork not just as a necessity but as a source of inspiration. Our team is not just a collection of individuals; it’s a cohesive unit working towards a common goal. The camaraderie and mutual respect within our staff creates a positive and empowering work environment where everyone’s contributions are valued.


The success of DRK is not solely based on our Remanufacturing or our Value Engineering, it is deeply rooted in our commitment to teamwork. We thrive on the principles of collaboration, tenacity, and continuous learning, inspired by Bill Russell’s wisdom. As we navigate the ever-evolving lighting industry, we do so with a united front, knowing that our strength lies in our exceptional team.
