Introducing Richie Barnett as our Brand Ambassador

Posted by:
Richie has joined us as a Brand Ambassador to help launch SAL Lighting into New Zealand.


Hamer is very pleased to announce its appointment as the exclusive New Zealand distributor for SAL Lighting, effective from 1st September 2020.

SAL is one of the market leaders in Australia for LED lighting and has been delivering innovative technology to customers since 1998. The brand has been represented previously in New Zealand, and during that time established a small but loyal following.

Hamer is well known for distributing the best brands to the NZ electrical wholesale industry and is proud of 'Delivering Certainty' to its customers across New Zealand since 1938.

The combination of Hamer's distributor expertise and SAL's products and innovation are the perfect match, and we are excited to offer customers a new choice for their lighting partner. Hamer is also expanding both internal and external resources to support our SAL growth plans and vision, with the bold aim to become the first choice for LED lighting in New Zealand.

To celebrate the official launch of the new distribution partnership, Hamer & SAL are very excited to announce the appointment of Richie Barnett - Kiwi Rugby League legend - as our SAL Brand Ambassador. We're delighted to have Richie representing the SAL brand, and are looking forward to welcoming Richie at upcoming industry events.

Stock is currently on order for the most popular SAL Lighting products, and we expect first shipments to arrive in October. This will cover internal, external, domestic, commercial and industrial categories. We'll be supporting customers with stock in both Christchurch and Auckland warehouses.

In the meantime, keep an eye out for the New Zealand specific SAL Lighting product catalogue and website, which are coming very soon. Our sales team will also be in touch to assist with any pricing and ranging questions. 

On behalf of the entire Hamer team, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to servicing your lighting needs in the future.
