AP Taylor is a family business, founded in 1997 after the closure of the Electrolux Factory in Luton. Alan Taylor began the business with 30 year experience handling returns at Electrolux. With a single client and a wealth of experience, including former Electrolux employees, AP Taylor began. The decades of experience have been passed down in the family to Alan’s son Ross who joined the business as Shareholder and Managing Director in 2004 and, complemented by additions to the management team, the company has gone from strength to strength. Despite this growth AP Taylor continues to uphold the main company ethic, which is to build long term, lasting, working relationships with our clients and to offer excellent value for money. Alan still remains on the board of directors and whilst he no longer plays a part in the running of this business his original vision and passion is clear throughout the operation On the other side of the business, more widely known as Direct Vacuums, we are the UK’s largest authorised online seller of manufacturer refurbished and graded products. Offering huge savings over RRP’s with refurbished and graded products inspected and condition to the highest standards, we have become one of the largest and most successful eBay traders worldwide and have rapidly growing sales platforms on Amazon in the UK and across Europe, and on other well-known sales platforms as well.
