In September 2012 we started our own e-commerce website to sell expansion boards for the Raspberry Pi computers.
We launched the new website in response to one of our home projects which was featured on Hackaday.com. This resulted in hundreds of requests to buy the Raspberry Pi datalogger board we had built.
We ordered 200 boards thinking it would take a few years to sell them all and after only one month they had all sold. We also built a custom robot to place the components onto the PCB boards.
The product range now has over 45 products designed and built in our home town and sold worldwide on our secure online store at www.abelectronics.co.uk
