Providing Freedom For Smokers Since 2008


Celebrating 10 Years of The Electronic Cigarette Company!

Isn’t hindsight a wonderful thing? We vapers could never have anticipated the level of success and popularity that vaping has had over the last ten years. In such a short space of time, millions of lives have been changed, as smokers have ditched the cigarettes and moved to a healthier alternative.

The Electronic Cigarette Company was there from the start, and as one of the first e-cigarette companies in the country is celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2018. As one of many successful vaping retailers throughout the UK, The Electronic Cigarette Company has been proud to have been part of a movement which has positively impacted so many lives and continues to do so on a daily basis.


As nostalgia creeps in, we remember the days of the first cig-a-likes, the introduction of variable wattage technology, and the implementation of the TRPR regulations, all steps in the vaping journey that shape what we have today.

The industry has survived all the misleading tabloid headlines regarding e-cigarettes and we are proud to still stand and to celebrate 10 years in operation. As the years have flown by the business and its products have improved, including the birth of UK Vapour Brands, born in 2014 and the official UK distributor of TECC, Joyetech, Eleaf & Wismec products. Thanks to UKVB and the many vaping stores across the UK, you can now find TECC products such as the arc 5 and arc Mini in retail outlets across the UK and beyond.

However we can’t allow ourselves to get lost in nostalgia, and like the many fantastic vaping retailers in the UK we must look forward and continue to innovate and provide vapers with their needs, high-quality e-cigarettes and e-liquid.



Moving On...

Due to the company’s expansion over the years we have outgrown old premises, such as our Brook Mill complex, the birthplace of The Electronic Cigarette Company and a place of very happy memories. We were next based in Shadsworth Business Park in Blackburn, where iconic e-cigarettes such as the arc and arc Mini came to fruition.

After outgrowing our second home, we eagerly anticipated the move to our current residence, the old fire station in Accrington, a grade II listed building which has lay dormant for over 10 years. We have worked with architects and the local council to design a new function for the building and recover the wonderful structure as the new HQ and distribution centre for UKVB and The Electronic Cigarette Company. 

The rebirth of the fire station is not only a wonderful way to celebrate our 10th anniversary, but has allowed us to move into a bespoke working environment for a vaping company, including a 2nd floor addition that strikes a clear distinction between its industrial past and its new function, the whole time being respectful to its former use.

Thank you for your continued support!

Here’s to The Electronic Cigarette Company’s 10th year, which we will celebrate by continuing to do what we have done from the start, provide freedom from smoking and change smokers and former smoker’s lives...What does freedom mean to you?
