Bulk handling company awarded supplier of the year

AT the third annual Australian Bulk Handling Awards held in Sydney late last year, specialist conveyor component company, Kinder & Co, was named Supplier of the Year, in recognition of this privately owned company’s service, performance and customer commitment in the bulk handling sector.

According to the company, it was their committment to ‘corporate citizenship’, by initiating and implementing many new initiatives which contributed to the company’s success at the Awards.

One example of the company’s committment was the introduction of an industry-first recycling loop to the as part of an ongoing commitment to the introduction of environmentally friendly, longer life products and taking a proactive stance to choose sustainable and recyclable products.

Once plastic components supplied by the company come to the end of their life cycle, by arrangement, clean and palletised components can be returned for recycling. This “cradle-to-cradle” solution prevents Kinder plastic conveyor components from ending up on a landfill tip.

With a continuous commitment to improve supply lines and support growing industries with reliable and on-demand parts and solutions, Kinder & Co now offers the most comprehensive range of stock belt conveyor hardware in Australia.

The Bulk Handling Award was received by Kinder & Co founder and Managing Director, Neil Kinder and Christine Kinder.

Established in 1985, Kinder and Co is still a privately owned, family operated business, which has today grown to become a leading independent supplier and manufacturer of end-to-end solutions for the mining and manufacturing industry in Australia.

As a company that places family values as a high priority, company founders Neil (Managing Director) and Christine Kinder (Marketing Services Manager), are still very much a part of the day to day operations of the business, guiding the staff and sharing their own family values to build a culture that has been the envy of the industry for over 20 years.

“With an intimate understanding of the heavy process industry, our constant contact with the maintenance, planning and procurement specialists of our customers, keeps us tuned in to their every need,” said Mr Kinder.

“This has led us to become a solution-driven company, offering lateral and out-of-the-box thinking, as we build ongoing partnerships with our customers.”

Looking towards the next 20 years, Neil Kinder said: “we will remain committed to serving our customers and supporting the local industry, by being innovative and offering global solutions, introducing new product efficiencies, focusing on environmental benefits and continuing to strive for the service excellence our customers have come to expect.”
