Harry Hamer immigrated to Christchurch, New Zealand with his family in 1903, as a seven year-old boy. Twenty five years later, Hamer Electrical was born.
In 1938 Hamer Electrical Co Ltd opened for business in a modest suite of offices in Hereford Street, Christchurch. Seven of the original staff, a rather worn De Soto "Airflow" car, and many of the products first marketed by the new Hamer Company had come from Gough, Gough & Hamer.
More than 80 years have now passed and Hamer has continued to grow. The Hamer family has now passed ownership of the business to another family, but the Hamer spirit remains true.
The emphasis is on marketing high quality products and the provision of the best possible service.
