1) Having a word with our London branch, they have just ordered a set of electrical appliance from Kian Ann Electrical company.
London branch = is one of the branches. Our company have many branches in England and United States.
Kian Ann Electrical company = is one of the suppliers for our company.
I have phoned to my London branch recently and knew that they have ordered goods as above.
Now I want to inform this matter to one branch in Now York. I use the above 1) sentence.
Dear teachers, please teach me whether the above 1) sentence is grammartically correct.

It would be better as:
'Our London branch have informed me that they have just ordered a set of electrical appliances from the Kian Ann Electrical company.'
(Note the correct spelling of 'grammatically'.)

Thank you for answering my question and correct the word 'grammatically"
But you write "Our London branch have........." I think it should be "....has....."
Please refer the following :
Our London branch has....... (singular)
Our branches have.................(plural)
Dear teachers, please advise whether I am correct.
Note : .......... THEY have just ordered...... "they" refer to who?
