The Amco Group began life in York, as a small business named Janico of York in 1972, and Retford in 1985, selling electrical components. Founded by Peter Frost in 1972, the family lineage is still strong within the business, with 3 generations of involvement.

Janico of York had multiple locations, before settling at 62 Balmoral Terrace in 1985. At the same time, in 1985, Andy Jervis established his own business in Retford, the original Amco of Retford. The trusted and friendly service quickly gained popularity, and it was eventually realised that we could provide the same service across Yorkshire. 

Over time the company began to emerge in various locations across the county as Amco, always seeking to provide an honest yet competitive service. Our business development team constantly source and assess the latest proven products on the market; we are committed to development and innovation.


The pictures below show the first Amco of Retford premises and the current premises of Amco Distributors ltd.

Years down the line, Janico and Amco went into partnership to establish branches across Yorkshire & Nottinghamshire, and the Amco Group was born!

Things have indeed come a long way, as we now specialise in home automation technology, LED lighting, and security. Amco of Doncaster has made the bold step towards only providing electrical wholesale, as we believe we can provide a better service by focusing our efforts in one area. Our other branches still offer plumbing and bathroom services, with showrooms in both York and Barnsley, and our primary showroom at Retford.

Of course, we also supply photovoltaic systems, with the various auxiliary systems which can be added to increase their efficiency. This is a service we have been providing reliably for 5 years now, and see many more ahead!
