PAST GLORY

The old Gilmore premises in Fountain Street

one which has always been committed to moving with the times.

Formerly known as Gilmore & Co, the company was established in 1898 when William Edwin Gilmore, a young quaker businessman, opened an electrical shop at 25 Fountain Street, Belfast.

The company moved many years later to premises in Middlepath Street and is now based in Blythe Street, Belfast.

By 1910, the company was a leading Electrical contractor, installing industrial and domestic systems throughout Ireland, Scotland and England.

On June 18, 1903, Gilmore & Co were commissioned, on the authority of town clerk Mr Sam Black, to install electric lighting in The Ulster Hall and to ‘execute the work for the sum of £385 being the lowest accepted and that the Town Clerk prepare the necessary contract’.

And records from February 1910 document Belfast businessman Mr Chapman praising a Gilmore electrical installation: ‘We have found the system to work most efficiently and have not had any trouble with it - the working of it being almost as simple as gas!’

William Gilmore retired in 1946 and the business was bought over by an ex-apprentice, Samuel Crawford.

He was joined by his wife and son Jim who helped run the company  for 50 years. In 1996 the Crawford family decided that Gilmore & Co should be incorporated and strengthened as part of The Academy Group of Companies, with Mr Jim Crawford continuing on a full time basis.

The well respected Gilmore name was retained and continues to prosper.

 

ILMORE SIGNS is certainly a company which has stood the test of time - and
