Hamer imports quality tools and electrical products from around the world. Our products are found behind the scenes in homes, offices, factories, power networks and anywhere humans control their environments – from water management in agriculture to air quality in the work space.

Hamer promises to ‘Deliver Certainty’ to the electrical industry, and we believe our quality products add an element of safety to every aspect of electrical activity in New Zealand. Whether it be the tools used in installation and maintenance or electrical components that energise and protect equipment, Hamer only distributes and supports quality products.


You will see our world leading brands in protected switching solutions, cable management systems and switchboards. Our people are never far away, advising our channel partners on the latest product releases, with knowledge and expertise from their years of industry experience. And when it comes to tools, we source the ones that last, allowing electricians and linemen to get the job done right.
