Some of the highlights of the period included a £5 million follow on contract from the UK Ministry of Defence UK for the provision of consulting services to the British Army.

TP Group also secured an €18 million contract extension from the European Space Agency running up to December 2022, with the above figure representing the first tranche of orders.

Phil Cartmell, TP Group’s CEO said: “Pleasingly, we were able to maintain strong revenues in the first half of the year, as a result of our robust core business and the Group's long-term order book, whilst making further planned investments despite the challenges of COVID-19.”
