The company's history dates back to 1917 when it was founded by the Hammond father and son in Guelph, Canada. In its early years, Hammond focused exclusively on producing transformers for radio receivers, broadcasting technology, and battery chargers. To adapt to the flourishing and evolving broadcasting and communication industry of the 1930s, Hammond became the first Canadian company to create a line of double-rack cabinets and narrow cabinets.
In the 1950s, the company expanded into manufacturing racks, covers, and enclosures for the electrical and electronic industry. Over the years, Hammond established several additional branches in the USA, the United Kingdom, and Taiwan. Hammond provides a wide range of standard products, product customization services, and technical support to its customers.
