A1 Comms, located on Turnpike Business Park, was ranked 33rd on this year’s Derbyshire Top 200 Businesses List – two places higher than last year when it was placed at number 35.

The company was ranked at number 33 after reporting a turnover of £151 million, based on accounts from April 2021 for a 10 month period.

Steve Heald, managing director of the company, said: “I’m so pleased to see our progress in the Derbyshire Top 200 again this year.

“It comes down to the collective efforts of just under 200 colleagues in Alfreton and Darley Mills successfully serving hundreds of thousands of UK consumers.

“And, of course, we’re able to offer our customers competitive prices on top brands amidst a cost-of-living crisis, and the value of that can’t be understated.”

A handful of other local companies also feature on the list, including Sun Chemical (ranked at number 32), Griffith Foods (ranked at number 73) and EPC-UK plc (ranked at number 78).

A1 Comms celebrated its 25th year in business in November last year.
