About Us

AES Distribution Centre

1 Stop Welding Shop is the official trading website of AES Industrial Supplies Ltd, based in Oxfordshire, UK.

We began as a family business in 1976 under the name Alpha Engineering Supplies, and after enjoying many years of consistent growth, we registered as a limited company in 2012 and rebranded as AES Industrial Supplies Ltd.

Since our small departmental beginnings in the 1990s, AES has steadily built on its continuing success in a difficult marketplace by exceeding the expectations of our customers with unrivalled service, technical support and value for money.

We believe that this powerful combination has truly set us apart from any other distributor or wholesaler in the UK welding industry.

AES offers a complete one-stop shop for the welding and metal fabrication industries with excellent trade prices.

"I was looking for a one stop shop for all my manufacturing consumables and AES listened and offered a service tailored to my business needs. The depth of knowledge throughout the team is a credit to the professionalism shown by AES.
