SINGER Jamaica Ltd is committed to providing employment to Jamaicans across the island and to ensuring that Jamaicans can live comfortably with items bought on Singer’s Flex
ible Credit Plans. Our dedicated personnel in our stores share our commitment to providing exceptional customer service and work tirelessly to ensure that now, more than ever, our customers will “Love to Shop at Singer.”
SINGER Jamaica Limited has had a presence in the world for 160 years and in Jamaica for over 100 years. The company began its operations in Jamaica by selling sewing machines. Salesmen travelled out in the field with pictures of sewing products to potential customers. When the sale was made the item was delivered to the customer using a handcart. The first retail store was opened on Harbour Street with four members of staff selling only one sewing machine each day. The company has experienced significant growth since and today sells a wide range of electronics, appliances, furniture and bedding in addition to its sewing machine line. Singer has 19 branches island-wide and employs over two hundred Jamaicans directly.
SINGER Jamaica, recognizing the importance of personal development and especially the independence of women has been teaching sewing from our retail outlets since 1940. At our Sewing Academy we have taught over 7,000 Jamaicans to sew. Through our sewing programmes many persons have been able to start their own dressmaking business thus providing an income for their families. Singer Jamaica has assisted many Secondary Schools and Skills Development Centres island-wide by donating sewing machines to assist in their sewing programmes and has even provided specialized training in areas such as Garment construction, Machine Embroidery and Drapery Making to teenage children in Kingston and in rural Jamaica.
SINGER is committed to fostering the growth of Jamaican small manufacturers as is seen in our reliance on local furniture suppliers. Presently, 70% of our furniture is bought locally from over 30 suppliers who employ jointly approximately 400 Jamaicans. Our furniture manufacturers are encouraged to create new and appealing designs and work closely with our purchasing team and quality assurance personnel to constantly refine their product quality. Singer throughout the years has become known for its exceptional product offering in local furniture product and our products can be seen in the homes of Jamaicans across the island
SINGER has assisted many schools through the provision of sewing machines and has taught children to sew through joint programs with children’s homes and government institutions. We have for many years donated furniture and appliances to homes that care for children and the aged and continue to focus on these two sectors of our citizenry by way of donations.

Gomex Technologies Limited, a Jamaican Company duly registered under the Laws of Jamaica under the Companies Act of 2004, was founded in March 2009 to respond to the need for
trained professionals in information security and computer forensics in the Caribbean. To fully realise this objective Gomex signed partnership agreements with top forensics hardware and software companies international. Gomex signed reseller agreements with Guidance Software Inc, AccessData, Logicube, Cellebrite and other top forensics brands. Gomex has since consulted with law enforcement in Jamaica, Curacao, Grenada, Turks and Caicos Islands, and the Cayman Islands. In 2009, Gomex became the first and currently the only Authorised Training Partner (ATP) for Guidance Software makers of the Award Winning EnCase Computer Investigative Software. In 2001, Gomex was presented with a plaque form Guidance Software as the Rising star of 2011 for outstanding performance as a young training entity. In 2011, Gomex trained and certified to international standards 15 officers of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. These officers acquired the skills set necessary to investigate computers and digital devices for evidence, using internationally accepted best practices and to present the evidence in a court of law.
In July 2011, Gomex found it necessary to separate the training business form the consulting business as a way of better organising products and services. Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was established to have a focused objective of provide professional training and certification to Jamaica and the Caribbean. To execute the mandate GSA signed an agreement with CompTIA, the world's most popular and vendor neutral certification and global information technology industry membership organisation. GSA then became a CompTIA Authorised Training partner offering a wide array of training programs for entry level information technology specialists. GSA then signed an agreement with the EC-Council internatio nal to become one of the two EC-Council Authorised Training Partner (ATP) in Jamaica to conduct training programmes in Ethical Hacking and other computer security related programs.
In September 2012, Gomex became a Pearson VUE Authorised Testing Centre to offer proctored exams for international certification bodies such as Cisco, Novell, CompTIA and many others. Within the first year of operation, Gomex proctored more than 120 Certifications exams to Jamaicans. Kryterion then approached Gomex to proctor their High-Stakes Online Secure testing service offering examinations in Communications and other college level proctored exams.
In 2013, with the demand for higher education, Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was renamed as Gomex Institute of Technology (GIT or Gomex Tech). This name change was needed to facilitate the comprehensive training programs and academic training that Gomex is now being positioning to take on. Gomex will continue to establish partnership with internat ional institutions to provide first class training programs to Jamaican and the Caribbean to a wider extent. Read more......Read less

Our annual Football Summer Camps 1st Touch and Finishing Touch have been a major success since its inception in 2002 to both us and the children that have come out to be a par
t of it.
The Summer Camps were the company’s first venture and was a huge success. It was followed up in December of that year with a one-day camp and fun day, the camp continued in 2003 and surpassed its previous success.
1st Touch has been one of the main events of the company and focuses on developing the skill set of first time and advanced footballers between the ages of 3 and 16 years old. This initiative has grown tremendously and we have seen over 150 young persons both male and female come out for 1st Touch 2010. The football camps have become a way of life for many families as repeat campers come year after year and have been bringing their friends.
Based on the growth and development of the Ballaz Player Development Programme on Saturdays, our recognition that our players require more time in training sessions and the parental "out cry" for additional days and time at Ballaz. We have embarked upon an "after school programme" since April 2011, and this programme is currently being offered on Tuesdays between 3 -5 at our home field at Liberty Academy.
Our Saturday morning programme, the Ballaz Player Development Programme (PDP) has been a true success over the past years. It involves the introduction of football to children of ages 3 - 6 years old and the developmental training sessions to children of ages 7 – 16 years old. In addition to our football sessions, we also introduce necessary "life skills" that are "aligned" to various football skills.
The lives of many young people have been impacted, through technical training and life skills and we hope that through this programme we will be able to continue doing so.
Ballaz Player Development Programmes extends to pre-schools in the corporate area. Read more......Read less
