History

Almost 30 years old, and still leading the market

Back in 1982, AKW started as a small Worcestershire business on a local trading estate. Since then we’ve grown into an international operation with:

  • 266 trained staff
  • A world-class manufacturing facility in the Isle of Man – DLP Limited
  • Two national distribution warehouses
  • A dedicated nationwide sales team

We’re now known as the UK’s leading manufacturer of accessible bathroom, kitchen and daily living products for the elderly, disabled and people with reduced mobility. And we’re recognised for our passion in excellent quality, choice and outstanding service.

So although it’s nice to look back at the past, we keep our eyes firmly on the future. Our designers are already working on a new generation of innovative products which combine the style and practical functionality.

A lot of our success is down to our philosophy, which we sum up in three words: Life. Style. Choice.
