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.
