Defence Public Affairs Consultants Ltd (DPAC) is a defence industry lobby firm which is owned by the Europac Group which in turn is run from the Glasgow offices of Barwell Plc (which owns 71% of Europac). The 'ultimate controlling party' of the DPAC is Viscount Gough.

According to a blurb on the Defence Manufacturers Association website:

The Company's mission is to help its clients to achieve their corporate, marketing and sales objectives. The Company provides professional services to major companies employing their own in-house PR and marketing teams and also smaller companies who have no dedicated specialists. The directors and principal consultants have an in-depth knowledge of liaison with procurement executives, MODs and governments world-wide. They also have practical experience of marketing and public relations in the defence industry and agencies.[1]
