From humble beginnings to international success.
AAP Wholesale was created in 2013 by budding entrepreneurs Philip Barrett and Andrew Carr, initially set up as a wholesale seller of redundant and clearance stock items. One day, after aquiring a large quantity of safety footwear and protective equipment, it was discovered there was a large online market for these item types and an idea was born.
The brand Tiger Safety soon followed, as well as adding Vicky to our team. The focus on safety products and footwear gave a direction to follow and quick online expansion on to eBay and then onto Amazon followed. After a couple of years of sucess selling on these platforms, further online growth was made, moving on to further international market place platforms, selling into Europe, the US, Canada, Mexico and Australia.
Now after 7 years of positive growth, the company turns over £2,000,000 each year and are large international distributors for brands that include Delta Plus, Rock Fall, Dr Martens, JCB Workwear, Caterpillar, Grafters and many others. We have regular purchasing customer from blue chip multi-national companies such as iNTU, Coca Cola, and Network Rail amongst others. We are still a family owned business and pride ourselves on providing excellent value, service and delivery.
Now in 2020 sees the time to launch our very own international online website, bringing to you all the products you know and love from eBay and Amazon, at a much lower price!
Over the next twelve months we hope to have all of our catalogue available online and have also lined up some exclusive promotions and offers that will save you even more money whilst bagging you some brand new work gear.
