About Us

A1 Electrics:

A1electrics are a small independent electrical wholesaler based in the UK, we have been around since 1986 (30 years in September 2016),
working out of the same warehouse today and owned by the same man that started it all those years ago, who, to this day still works in the business like any other employee as part of our small team.

Back then, we started as Fluorescents Plus, specializing in fluorescent lighting sales and repairs,
over the years we have evolved to keep up with ever-changing technology and customer demand.
That has led us to re-naming our business A1electrics, our new name better reflects the range of products we stock and is alot easier to spell.
Like the majority of decisions in this business, the new name was a joint decision between owner and every staff member.

We believe in providing great products, great service and value for money

Because we are a small team any product we stock is viewed by everyone, it is properly inspected and tested where possible.
If someone doesn't like a product for whatever reason, it is evaluated.
We also have a good relationship and supply local contractors, electricians and people who work in the electrical industry,
these people provide us with very valuable feedback about our products.
We only stock products we believe are fit for use and products that we would be happy to use ourselves.

We have a local store, where customers can walk in off the street and unlike larger electrical wholesalers, customers are free to walk around our entire warehouse and inspect all our products.
We are so confident in the quality of our products that we offer our local customers the chance to take products home and try them before they buy.

Customers First

If you don't buy anything or you spend £1000, every customer is treated equally.
We have a lot of knowledge about the products we stock, the owner has served for many years as an electrician and our  employees all specialize in different areas.
If you give us a call, we are happy to answer any questions you might have about our products or any other queries you might have electrical related.
If we can't answer, we will try to put you in touch with someone who can.

Feel free to visit our Facebook page, where we try to post at the very minimum once a week, the same guy who wrote this page runs the Facebook page.

Last but not least

Everybody enjoys a bargain, including us, we are constantly reviewing our prices and negotiating with our suppliers so we can offer you the best products at the best prices online and in store.
That's part of the reason why we have launched this website, we have been selling on eBay successfully for many years now,
but due to eBay fees etc we haven't been able to offer our products at the cheapest price possible,
with this website we cut out the middle man, but still offer you the same secure payment method ( PayPal ) as eBay while giving you a price that is as close as possible to our walk in price.

To keep things simple, this website only stocks our new from manufacturer products, if you are looking for used products, rare products or products on clearance, feel free to visit our eBay shop
