| 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 and is one of our competitors in the industry. Their global head office is in Milan, Italy. In the UK they are based near Manchester (close to the airport). They have about 100 branches and employ around 60 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 and they mainly sell their own brand of "Ampli" aids which can be made by one of a number of manufacturers, but at time of writing were made by Phonak
Other than independent hearing aid dispensers like us, the main Amplifon alternatives are at Boots Hearing Care, Specsavers Hearcare, Hidden Hearing, Bloom Hearing and Scrivens.

Want to know more about Amplifon? Amplifon doesn't publish their hearing aid prices online and you couldn't compare them even if they did as the technology they sell is rebranded under their own "Ampli" brand to prevent price comparisons. You would have to visit their stores for an assessment to be told their costs.
Alternatively, you can call us on 0800 567 7621 for a free and informal chat about the services we provide, the differences between us and Amplifon hearing aids and any hearing healthcare support.
