Machinery exporter Kelly Engineering has been named Telstra's 2010 South Australian Business of the Year. A machinery manufacturer which custom-makes equipment for agricultural purposes, Kelly Engineering took home the top honour at the recent awards ceremony. Now located in Booleroo Centre, Kelly Engineering started as a hobby business on a farm 20 years ago and is still family-owned. The business also won its category, the Panasonic Australia Medium Business Award. "Kelly Engineering should feel a great sense of pride because the calibre of the 14 finalists in this year’s Awards was very impressive, reflecting the strength of Australia’s small and medium business sector," said Deena Shiff, Telstra Business Group managing director and ambassador for the Telstra Business Award. "Judges said Kelly Engineering is an impressive and socially-responsible family business that is servicing world markets with unique, patented and constantly-evolving products backed by strong customer service," she added. "They have adapted their business model by expanding globally to protect their company and employees against local market fluctuations. While financially strong, they have significant growth opportunities ahead of them." Kelly Engineering supplies innovative farm machinery to markets in North America, Denmark, South Africa and New Zealand. It employs 38 staff and is a significant employer of apprentices in SA’s northern agricultural region.
