Victorian engineering business Kinder & Co last month opened its new headquarters at Braeside in south-east Melbourne.

Kinder & Co is a family-owned engineering company that designs and supplies products and solutions for conveyor and bulk materials handling equipment. 

Ten per cent of the businesses’ annual turnover is generated by exporting its equipment  internationally.

Kinder & Co’s new Braeside headquarters includes a design workshop, training room and a distribution centre where 21 staff are employed.

The VIC Minister for Energy and Resources, Russell Northe, who officially opened the new building said: “These new purpose-built facilities will help Kinder & Co improve its research and development as well as its training activities, logistics and customer service to enable it to capitalise on the growing potential of Australia’s mining industry as it enters its maintenance phase.”

Mr Northe said Kinder & Co expects to increase the number of people it employs in its business.

‘’By growing its operations it will also boost the number of people employed by its manufacturing subcontractors, said Mr Northe.

“The Institute of Quarrying Australia will also be using the company’s facilities for its training purposes, so Kinder & Co is making a wider contribution to the industries it supports too.”

Kinder supplies equipment to a broad range of industries including iron ore, quarried products, grain, sugar, salt and coal at more than 1,500 industry sites across Australia.

Mr Northe commended the commitment and success of Kinder & Co’s founders, Neil and Christine Kinder, who began the business from their family home in 1985.

“Kinder & Co is helping to build the productivity, competitiveness and capacity of other businesses and is creating jobs in Victoria as well as for its local and interstate manufacturing subcontractors, Mr Northe said.

“It demonstrates the enterprise of Victorian small to medium-sized enterprises, with a strong focus on improving its productivity, developing its skills base, and marketing itself to national and international clients.”
