Auto Electric SuppliesAuto Electric Supplies Limited was first established in 1996 as Vehicle Wiring Services, a company that made and installed bespoke wiring looms for vintage and classic vehicles. As Vehicle Wiring Services prospered, more and more auto electric components were being supplied to customers and it was therefore decided to split the business in two. Vehicle Wiring Services is still the UK’s number one vintage and classic bespoke wiring loom manufacturer and installer. To meet the demand for high quality auto electric components delivered direct to the customer at reasonable prices, Auto Electric Supplies Limited began to meet orders on a mail order basis. Since its launch, Auto Electric Supplies Limited has gone from strength to strength and is now a major worldwide supplier.
