| Update 08/02/21: Amplifon have scaled down their UK operations and have pulled out of their 21 shops in Scotland. It is unknown at this time if other stores will be affected. If you are having difficulties contacting your local Amplifon store, call Amplifon head office on 0161 209 7000
Amplifon is one of the larger national retailers and operates in 18 countries. Their global head office is in Milan, Italy. In the UK they are based near Manchester (close to the airport). They have about 140 branches and employ around 100 dispensers.
Amplifon entered the UK market in 2006 by the acquisition of the Ultravox group of companies. Ultravox was previously the largest hearing aid retailer in the UK and owned several retailers: Amplivox Ultratone, Sietech and Hearing Health.
At the moment, Amplifon is not owned by any manufacturer. They do however tend to favour the Resound range of hearing aids.
Other than independent hearing aid dispensers like us, the main alternatives to get a hearing aid from are Amplifon are Boots Hearing Care, Specsavers Hearcare, Hidden Hearing, Bloom Hearing and Scrivens.
