Houston / Kemah, Texas – June 6, 2008 Hammonds Industries, Inc. (OTCBB: HMDI) today announced its Board of Directors has selected GBH CPAs, PC ("GBH") to serve as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008.  GBH replaces the Company’s previous independent registered accountants, GLO CPAs LLLP ("GLO").

We have had a very positive relationship with GLO, however, we believe GBH offers our shareholders the best combination of cost and quality and we look forward to working with their team.

The change was recommended by the Company’s Audit Committee. The Company and GLO did not have any disagreement on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures which disagreement, if not resolved to the satisfaction of GLO, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its report on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
