A F Thomas Electricals - Newport

A.F. Thomas Electricals was established in Newport in 1932 by Albert Frederick Thomas and this year we are celebrating our 90th Anniversary. Albert was an electrician working on the dock in Newport and it was his great ambition to open his own shop one day. In 1932 this became a reality and he opened his first shop in Commercial Road in Newport. At first Albert sold radios that he had made, and he also charged accumulators. The business thrived on its reputation for excellent customer service and eventually the product range expanded to include television sets and then household appliances such as washing machines and refrigerators.

In 1992 an opportunity arose to purchase a local spares distributor in Abergavenny called “Spares & Repairs” whilst the existing spares business continued to supply spares nationwide the existing shop front was quickly converted to a retail unit and this became our second branch.

In 2002 we joined Euronics, Europe’s largest independent buying group; this gave us huge buying power which we needed to compete with the large superstores. The buying group has over 600 stores and we all buy together giving us the edge over the large chains increasing our product range to include:

  • Bosch, Neff, and Siemens Appliances
  • Blomberg Appliances
  • Beko Appliances
  • Hotpoint & Indesit Appliances
  • Rangemaster, Stoves, Belling, Smeg and Leisure Range Cookers
  • Hoover Appliances
  • LG Appliances and Tv’s
  • Smeg Appliances
  • Small Appliances including Ninja Appliances
  • Vacuum Cleaners including Shark and Dyson
  • Sony, LG, Samsung, Hisense and Linsar TV's
  • Kitchen design and installation
  • Quooker Hot taps

Most of our products carry a longer warranty period than the normal one year, with some products having a Free 5-year warranty. Please see in store or online for details

All this coupled with our reputation for having excellent customer service, gives us a winning combination.
