Joining the Hamer team

Posted by:
We have a few new faces joining us here at Hamer.



Hamer is delighted to introduce two new faces to the team.

Craig Lipinski

Craig joins us to manage the Central and Lower North Island and with a significant number of years working in the lighting and electrical industry, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with him. 

Craig, or Lipi as he is affectionately known, has for many years managed the lighting for Signify (Philips) within the same region and has a strong following with a solid customer base amongst electrical wholesalers, contractors, consultants and lighting designers, and is the go-to guy for all lighting solutions you are seeking.

Along with his full background working in the wholesale distribution industry, Craig has a good grasp of the full Hamer suite of brands and products.

Lipi can be contacted at 021 828 241 or

Struan Banks

Struan joins us to manage the South Island. He has most recently been the lighting specification champion for Rexel Lighting and has managed the same area for approx. 5 years. Struan has a reputation as a solutions guy on all things lighting; he understand the importance of managing projects to be on time and on budget.

Along with his experience working with architects, consultants and contractors, Struan can walk the talk when it comes to managing projects, as his experience from inception to delivery for a large building contractor reinforces his understanding of the process from tender through to completion.

Struan joins the Hamer team in our Christchurch office and will provide our South Island customers a second to none service.

Struan can be contacted at 021 357 100 or
