Company Directors Gary and Heather Kerr began their Victoria owned and operated hire company "Kerr’s Northside Hire." They believed that Victoria needed a locally owned company. The company started with Gary and Heather running the office with one driver/mechanic employed in the yard. Help also came from Gary’s parents Reg and Marie.
Kerr’s Northside Hire quickly expanded, taking on major contracts from Australian Cement Limited, Pivot Fertilisers & Danum Engineering, all important businesses in Geelong’s industry. In 1998 Kerr’s expanded its staff to a total of twelve, including a new hire controller and mechanic so the company could better service the growing market in the region. Jarrod, Gary’s son had begun working in the business since he was 15 and during this time held roles as a mechanic & driver. Jarrod was promoted to the position of hire controller in 2003 which sought to combine his wealth of experience and knowledge of the equipment from the workshop into the front office. In 2017, Jarrod was appointed General Manager and today enjoys focussing on growing all aspects of the business.
Kerr’s Hire prides themselves on being a local family business that strives to support other local businesses. As we look to the future we plan to continue to supply local customers with high quality equipment and great service. We would like to thank all of our customers who have supported our business and have watched us grow over the last 36 years.
