About Us

AB Electronics UK was founded in 2012 by brothers Andrew and Brian Dorey, who have had a keen interest in the electronics hobbyist market for many years.

Andrew has qualifications in electronic servicing and repairs and has previously worked for companies repairing home entertainment items before moving into the graphical design market.

Brian spent his first working years repairing white goods and household electrical items before moving into the retail market and then into IT.

Since 1998 we have run a successful web development agency. We have also continued our love of electronics and hardware modifications with many projects for the home and play, many of which are shown on the project blog at www.briandorey.com.

Over the past few years, the emergence of the popular Arduino system boards and other hobby prototype boards and the Raspberry Pi microcomputer boards led to the development of a home monitoring system for our semi-off-grid solar system at their home and office.

After one of the blog project posts was featured on the popular Hackaday website, many enquiries about where to buy the prototype boards started flooding in. So we decided to sell these boards and other related products in our shop.
