About Us

Hammonds is a long established company dealing in the Sale, Rental & Service of LCD & Plasma TV’s. The company has evolved from humble beginnings in Church lane and Governor’s Street to bigger and better new premises in Watergardens. Our retail shop, service and technical department and one of our stores are now all under one roof, thus facilitating the day to day running of the business and making the company highly efficient.

We pride ourselves in offering the best service possible to our customers and strive in a fast changing and competitive world to maintain this. We have a large customer base of long term and loyal customers, which sometimes span three generations.

We are the official Sales & Service Agents for Philips, and we have the only fully functional service department in Gibraltar, able to repair and service all types of LCD’s, Plasma’s, Audio equipment as well as the fading generation of conventional CRT TV sets.

We have a dedicated team of 16 staff members ranging from sales and administration to engineers, technicians and installers.

Our consumer products and services have been the backbone of our business for many years, but recently we have developed a less visible and more dynamic line of Professional Services which are rapidly growing. From Digital Signage to Professional installations in the Corporate, Gaming and Hotel sectors, amongst others.

We are proud to have been able to adapt to changing technology and develop our services, meeting the demands of the modern electronics market.

Quote from Managing Director

"The company has a great ability to adapt to changing needs and always ready to face demanding projects and challenges... This could not be achieved without the hard work and efforts of my Dedicated Team of Professionals... I am very proud and honoured to be at the helm of the family business, and thank my late grandfather Edward J. Hammond for influencing me with his relentless hard work and dedication throughout my younger years."

Brief Company History

Our company was founded in 1929 by the late Edward J. Hammond originally working for a small workshop in City Mill Lane together with his brothers. When WWII broke out the family was split up and upon their return to Gibraltar the business developed with a small workshop in Church Lane and retail shops in Main Street and Governors Street. The business was now run by Mr.E.J.Hammond and his sons and daughter. In the early seventies the directors decided to develop the two emerging lines of the business separately and subsequently the business was split into two areas, TV Sales ,Rentals & Service run by brothers Eddie J. Hammond and John W. Hammond and Electrical, DIY & Hardware run by Eileen E.Hammond’s husband Clive J. Dalmedo. The company traded successfully during the closed frontier period. In August 1992 John W. Hammond retired, and in July 2000 Eddie J.Hammond retired handing over the running of the business to nephew Stephen D. Dalmedo who was appointed Managing Director.

In 2001 in order to modernize the company, the shop and showroom in Church lane was refurbished with new PC systems and facilities installed.

Subsequently due to the problems and inconvenience encountered with working in the congested town area and the old Theatre Royal demolition which severely affected our business activity, in July 2006 the company decided to move the whole operation to Watergardens…………………and the new site was officially opened by Mrs Aida Green (nee. Hammond), sister of the company founder on Thursday 1st February 2007.

The move has facilitated the access to our shop for customers and our working hours were adapted to suit changing needs. The company now has a solid base from which to further develop and grow from strength to strength with new products, innovations and services.
