The company has taken a building at Beighton Link, Rotherham, after 15 years at Brightside Lane, Sheffield, which it retains. Founded in Sheffield in 1978, the firm supplies discount retailers and pharmacies across the world.

Last year it won a Queen’s Award for International Trade after export earnings grew 283 per cent over six years, from £3m in 2009, to £12m in 2014.

Debbie Harrison, joint managing director, said: “The move will allow us to double our turnover from £40m to an anticipated £80m, and increase staff numbers to 150 over five years.”

Staff worked over the weekend to make sure Pricecheck was up and running in the new premises on Monday. More than 700 pallets of stock were unloaded in one day.
