Kelly & Windsor Australia was awarded the Hume Council Export award for 2016.
The Hume Council is the local government authority in the north east of Melbourne which includes a diverse range of residential, commercial and manufacturing businesses. The Council's area is quite large and includes the Melbourne airport and over five thousand small to large manufacturing companies. The Council is very proactive and supportive of manufacturing businesses within its area and indeed Kelly & Windsor has had several Mayors and executive Council staff tour our factory over the years.
The Hume Council presents annual awards to companies in its region for various categories of business including best small manufacturing and exporters.
For the 2016 event several hundred companies were nominated and the finalists invited to a presentation event at the Hilton hotel at Melbourne Airport who were a major sponsor.We were advised in November that Kelly & Windsor was a finalist and we were invited to the evening event. As each award category was introduced the finalists were named and the winners were announced by Drew Jessop the Mayor of the Hume Council. Kelly & Windsor won the Export Award and was a finalist in the best small manufacturing category.

We are donating a day's production to make wool quilts and pillows which we will give to the Father Bob Maguire Foundation so that they can help and support those who are in need in our local community.
We are very proud to support such a great cause and look forward to another Father Bob day.
As part of our giving back philosophy, we are excited to announce that Kelly & Windsor Australia and the Alpaca Bedding Company has recently partnered with The Lung Foundation of Australia in a cause related marketing program.
Our goal is to contribute to a very worthy cause by donating to their resreach programs.
First launched in 2006, our alpaca underblankets have been very popular but unfortunately in 2015 we encountered some technical manufacturing problems that we just couldn't resolve and we reluctantly had to discontinue their production.
Today we are advising that they are coming back in winter 2021.
