About APC

About APC Distributor

Starting as a sole trader importing Toncelli fitted kitchens and Mamoli taps in 1976, Achille Paolo Chiorando then developed APC Distributor into a limited company in 1978, with his own manufacturing base in Italy specifically for the design and production of taps for the English market.

Still to this day a family run business, APC is neither a faceless corporation, nor a kitchen table enterprise, but a large, knowledgeable company run by people who have been brought up in the industry.

Unlike many companies around today, the staff have in depth knowledge of the product and are always willing to help. APC Distributor Ltd also manufacture their own products, so you are safe in the knowledge that when you talk to us we can speak in confidence about the quality and provenance of our range of taps.

APC Distributor Ltd have had the pleasure of supplying many of the large brands around today, and we will continue to supply our products to the trade, but we now also wish to extend to the public the opportunity to purchase our outstanding quality kitchen taps and bathroom taps at great prices, direct from the manufacturer.

Each individual tap is tested twice, by both water and air before leaving our assembly plant in northern Italy, close to Milan. This quality control has always been a vital part of the process in order to guarantee confidence in the products that we stock here in the UK.

We feel that the industry and the discerning shopper are changing, and as in the past, we wish to head up this transformation. With help at the end of the phone from those in the know, and an online catalogue, our customer is able to save their already precious time by buying directly from us. We can offer excellent prices for premium products.

Indeed, part of our appeal is the fact that each and every customer is able and invited to contact us; we are always at the end of the phone and we want to answer any questions you may have about our products. As the manufacturer of these products, we have in depth knowledge that chain stores cannot offer.

We have a large range of constantly evolving products, from old fashion kitchen taps & bathroom taps, to architecturally designed kitchen sink taps. We carry a huge range of stock so our customer will never be disappointed, and can offer hard to find products such as coloured taps, from Gold, to Mocca Brown, to Champagne. Many of our kitchen taps and bathroom taps, such as our water filter tap, are WRAS approved, and in fact, our filter tap is the only complete kitchen filter tap unit that is WRAS approved on the market.

We also want to reassure our customer, that having been around for 30 years, you can be safe in the knowledge that we will continue to trade for many years to come. If ever there is a problem with your kitchen tap or bathroom tap, you can be sure that we will be able to offer replacement spare parts which are made specifically for that tap. We carry a huge range of spare parts, and will continue to do so, for each tap that we make.
