Company Overview

AO World plc is an online electrical retailer. The business was founded in 2000 by John Roberts as Appliances Online, rebranding as AO.com in 2013 and listing on the London Stock Exchange in February 2014. AO's growth is down to its AO Way of retailing; offering a simply better customer experience with an innovative website, a huge range, unbeatable prices and market-leading customer service. In the UK, through www.ao.com AO operates in multiple categories; Major Domestic Appliances MDA - its main and more mature category, Small Domestic Appliances SDA, Audio Visual AV and computing, and more recently adding Gaming, Mobile, Smart Home and Photographic devices and equipment to its ranges. AO operates from one National Distribution Centre and twelve outbases in the UK, with the vast majority of deliveries being undertaken through Expert Logistics Limited (a group subsidiary). In mainland Europe, AO operates in Germany and The Netherlands. AO launched www.ao.de in Germany in October 2014 with MDA and expanded its offering in February 2016 with the introduction of Floorcare, and in October 2016 with the introduction of AV. AO's international expansion strategy took a step further in February 2016 with the launch of MDA in The Netherlands and the recent introduction of AV to www.ao.nl. The business has a new 35,000 sq. metre Regional Distribution Centre in Bergheim which is now fully operational, serving Germany and The Netherlands. In 2015, AO invested in a majority equity stake in The Recycling Group Limited (now renamed AO Recycling), its recycling partner, securing a WEEE processing facility for the Group and giving AO control in ensuring its waste is dealt with responsibly in the UK.
