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.

I noticed a Facebook post last weekend "who owns Kelly & Windsor Australia?" Is it really an Australian owned business?
We are a 100% owned Australian owned and operated business. The ownership of the company is on the pubic records and we extensively use the Australian made and Owned logo under a licence agreement with The Australia Made Campaign.
Despite the challenges of the Covid pandemic, we have maintained full manufacturing and shipping operations since the initial out break. We are actually struggling to met demand for our luxurious Australian Made bedding collections.
We have instigated strict Covid Safe Policies and Practices and are prepared to offer full support to staff who may be effected in these difficult times.
We were on TVSN with our Alpaca Gold 400 winter quilts and pillows with two shows in June which were both sold out.
These shows were the first time featuring our finest pure Alpaca Gold quilts and despite not being able to be in the studio in person, the shows were a great success with repeat orders required to fill customer back orders.
