The award was announced at Family Business Australia’s recent national conference in Adelaide, South Australia.

Speaking on the win, the company said it attributed its strength to being a successful family first, which allowed the Kennards brand and business to grow into a highly successful multi-generational business.

“Kennards the business and Kennards the family started at home,” the company said.

“That’s where its roots are the strongest and it continues the same way today.”

Company CEO Allen Besseling said the award recognised the hard work and commitment of the entire Kennards team, which he was proud to lead.

“I feel privileged to be a part of a family business like Kennards Hire,” he said.

“It’s incredibly exciting to be recognised by our peers and the entire Kennards Hire team will continue to strive to deliver a service with a distinct family feel.”
