Information About Maplin

History of Maplin

Maplin, or Maplin Electronic Supplies as it was first known, started as a mail order business operating from an Essex bedroom in 1972. Electronics enthusiasts Sandra Allen and Doug Simmons set up the business to address what they saw as the poor availability of electronic component suppliers. The first store opened in Westcliff-on-Sea and today the company is a multinational operation with more than 210 stores, some located as far afield as Taiwan.

The company's mission is to be the UK and Ireland's first choice for electronic solutions to everyday problems, improvements and hobby needs. It is the UK's largest specialist retailer of consumer technologies and gadgets with over 2,000 employees.

The 1980s were a key stage in the development of the company. Maplin had already started designing electronic kits for musicians and electronics enthusiasts, including organs and synthesisers, and their popularity prompted the publication of a new magazine by the firm, Electronics - The Maplin Magazine, which published full details of how to build them.

But the surge in home computer ownership created further opportunities for Maplin to create equipment to enhance them such as speech synthesisers and memory expansion cards. At its height, the range of the home-build kits offered was vast, ranging from radio kits to power amplifiers and even a weather station. Maplin's operations in the Far East began in 1992.

In 2013 the company introduced 'drop shipping' which allowed it to greatly increase its product range. Under the arrangement, goods are bought through the company which places the order with the supplier without actually acquiring the stock itself.
