A Little About AO
History of AO (Appliances Only)
Founded by John Roberts in 2000 and headquartered in the Northern UK town of Bolton. They have also expanded into Europe with a strong presence in Germany. It seems to be a very well run company winning many awards for being a great employer. AO.com have their own appliance/fridge recycling facility in Telford, Shropshire. In 2019 they processed their millionth fridge.
The AO company was purportedly established by John Roberts over a £1 bet in a Bolton pub. AO initially started life in 2000 as “Appliances Only” but rebranded to AO.com in 2003. They have a strong online presence and even sponsored the 11th series of Britain’s Got Talent show.
John Roberts is worth over 200 million and famously said he would not be leaving the money to his kids.
