About Us

Sparkworld is a 'bricks and mortar' Domestic Appliance Retailer and Wholesaler, with two premises in the UK.

Our wholesale sector distributes to trade customers, covering half the country on a weekly basis - supplying a range of new, end-of-line and manufacturers graded domestic appliances.

Our retail stores supply everything a kitchen needs - appliances, cabinets, worktops and even the kitchen sink - to homes in Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset.

Sparkworld.co.uk has been set-up as a virtual extension to our bricks and mortar retail business, making it even easier to get product information and place your order - all whilst receiving the same fantastic Sparkworld service you would expect in-store!

During the last three decades we have established strong links with major manufacturers. This has enabled us to offer you a superb selection of kitchen appliances, units and worktops at incredible prices. Furthermore, by holding stock worth over £1.5 million and by running our own fleet of vehicles - including 27 tonne HGVs and 3.5 tonne vans - we can deliver a huge selection of appliances to your home at short notice!

With an unbiased, no-jargon approach and over 50 years of combined experience in kitchens and appliances, we are confident that your expectations will be exceeded! We look forward to helping you find the perfect products for your home.

Company History

Sparkworld was started in 1985 by Marian Crausaz and Ian James, who had previously run a small company called Torbay Tubes. The contacts gained through Torbay Tubes allowed them to start Sparkworld. The first premises were located just off Torquay Road, in a group of units called Coventry Farm, which was used as a base for the distribution of reconditioned machines around Cornwall.
After a short period, Sparkworld relocated to a 6,000sq.ft warehouse on the Brunel Industrial Estate, in Newton Abbot.
The next move took Sparkworld to a site on the Heathfield Industrial Estate, just outside of Bovey Tracy, where the company expanded into retail as well as wholesale. After 10 years of continual growth the company purchased, what was then the Coca-Cola distribution centre, 9 Battle Road. In the following years, the building was expanded to include a large showroom for retail customers and a 55,000sq.ft warehouse. Our Heathfield kitchen showroom was built in 2008, enabling us to offer an extensive range of locally constructed, high quality, kitchen units and worktops. The display also includes two 'live' kitchens, where you can see a selection of appliances in operation along with mouth-watering cooking demonstrations.

In 2003, Sparkworld opened a new appliance store in Martock, Somerset. Due to the success of our Heathfield kitchen showroom we have expanded the range of products on display at Martock to include a 4500sq.ft Kitchen Showroom, with 14 kitchens - 4 of which are 'live' demonstration kitchens.
