Europe’s leading Incentive and Motivation company is expanding their Rotherham-based location to help meet growing demand.

The company, SVM Europe Ltd, has worked with the Council, to secure an additional 12,000 square feet of office space.

With customers such as Toys R Us, Starbucks, Debenhams, John Lewis and M&S, the company has seen significant increase and growth in four years with now employing over 60 staff.

Brian Dunne, Managing Director for SVM Europe Ltd, said: “We are a values driven business and our success over the past four years has purely been down to the people in our organisation. We have been very fortunate in attracting local people who fit with our passion and culture and we have an excellent team who without their enthusiasm and dedication we certainly would not have expanded at the rate we’ve seen over the past few years.

"Rotherham Borough Council, through its business support arm, Rotherham Investment and Development Office (RiDO), has also supported us since day one and they've been instrumental in this latest development to increase our office space in Rotherham."

Cllr Dominic Beck, Cabinet Member for Business Growth and Regeneration at the Council, said: "SVM is a real success story for the local area, both in terms of job creation and the boost this give to the local economy. We’re delighted to see the company thrive in Rotherham and congratulate them on their success.

"A key part of growing the local economy is also about supporting the growth of companies that are already trading in Rotherham. We have thousands of good companies that have growth potential and we are keen to work with them to harness that potential."

The new, extended premises officially opens on Monday 19 January and will be attended by Cllr Beck and the original founder of SVM, Marshall Reavis, who started the parent company 18 years ago in the USA.
