Mitesh Soma and his wife Krishna, both 33, set up Chemist Direct in November 2007 and last year the business recorded a turnover of more than £10 million.

The new company, which will operate from a warehouse in Smethwick, West Midlands, will sell cut-price stationery and aims to take on giants such as Staples, Viking Direct and Ryman as it builds a share of the £2.5 billion UK stationery market.

The website will target small and medium businesses in particular.

Mitesh claims customers will be able to make average savings of 50 per cent on stationery compared with High Street retailers. More than 20,000 items will be available through the new website.

Mitesh says: "With conditions as tough as they are firms are looking at ways to save money wherever possible, which is why we believe the timing of this site is right.

We can offer huge savings because we buy on the wholesale markets.

For example, we will be selling 5,000 staples for 41p compared with the High Street average cost of £2." Last week, Mitesh was named Best Male Entrepreneur in the BT Essence of the Entrepreneur Awards, following the success of Chemist Direct.
