  • (1888PressRelease) June 22, 2011 - The award winning online Parcel Delivery website - myParcelDelivery.comô have announced the completion of a six figure investment deal they have secured from entrepreneurial Investor - Mark O'Brien.

    The Manchester-based company launched by Cambridge University graduates David Grimes and Paul Haydock less than a year ago - provides businesses, eBay sellers and the general public a cost effective and reliable means of shipping their parcels Worldwide. Partnering with the leading UK courier companies such as UPS, DHL and TNT - users can book and pay for courier services at a much cheaper rate than if they went direct to the brands themselves.

    myParcelDelivery.comô are going to use the investment funds to accelerate their growth plans and diversify into new markets. Having achieved excellent growth in just 11 months of trading, and creating 14 jobs in Manchester in the process, the cash injection will enable the company to vastly surpass its current trading projections.

    O'Brien is a very experienced digital entrepreneur, having taken his own web based business to a £200m turnover entity in just five years. O'Brien exited the company in 2006 and has since been on the lookout for another on-line business opportunity with similar quick growth potential.

    O'Brien commented - "I have been looking at a number of investment opportunities over the last few years - however, none of them got me really excited. This all changed the minute I met David & Paul. They had obvious entrepreneurial flair, infectious enthusiasm and most importantly had created a fantastic business that has huge potential. I was so impressed with what they have achieved to date with myParcelDelivery.comô and their plans for the future are very bold indeed. I instantly knew I wanted to be a part of this and thought I could add real value in the process based on my own experiences."

    David Grimes, co-founder of myParcelDelivery.comô said - "Having been approached by a number of very experienced investors - we secured a fantastic deal with Mark that will ensure the growth and expansion of myParcelDelivery.comô occurs at a significantly faster rate than it would have done organically. We can now invest heavily in our technology, sales and marketing to propel our brand all over the UK. Mark brings to the table a wealth of knowledge of growing an on-line business, and has already had a big impact on the business."

    Having only launched the business in June 2010, David and Paul have already been recognised for their achievements with myParcelDelivery.comô by winning the 2010 Young Digital Entrepreneur of the Year award. The website has also won a number of other awards and is in the final shortlist for two of the categories in the Big Chip Awards on 16th June 2011.
