AO launches ‘rework’ facility for returned appliances
Online electricals retailer AO has opened a ‘rework’ facility to enable the business to give returned appliances a new lease of life.
Operating from the retailer’s Crewe warehouse, the facility is currently handling around 900 appliances a week including washing machines, fridges and TVs. Once safety tested, cleaned and repackaged, the appliances are sold for a reduced price on the AO Outlet Ebay shop,
Mark Rothwell, head of outlet sales at AO, said: “Our engineers take the time to thoroughly test these appliances three to four times so we can guarantee that they’re as good as new for future customers. At AO, we believe that reuse is the best form of recycling, so we’re really pleased to offer a new facility to support the second-hand market while also offering some great bargains for our customers.”
The facility has created several roles for engineers in the local area. In addition, AO is planning to launch apprenticeships and external levy approved training in the near future.
