Power Equipment - Yanmar  has won a prestigious award at the Premier Regional Business Awards held recently at the Palladium Ballroom in Crown Casino in Melbourne.  

Power Equipment was declared the ‘Best Small Business over the past 20 years’ in its category.  

Power Equipment is the authorised Australian distributor for Yanmar diesel engines and JCB industrial diesel engines.  

The Greater Dandenong Chamber of Commerce has over the past 20 years organised the Premier Regional Business Awards. Power Equipment had previously won the award for Best Small Business in 1997.  

For the 20th anniversary of the awards night, the organisers decided to have a ‘Best of the Best’ theme that would select one company in each category from all the award winners of the past twenty years on criteria such as honesty, integrity, expertise and passion.  

Power Equipment MD Allan Foster took to the stage to accept the award. In his acceptance speech, he described the growth of the company since 1997 in terms of five new acquisitions, staff strength of 100+ and a recent move to bigger premises.  

Power Equipment has also expanded from Yanmar products to become the JCB distributor in Australia. The company has also added New Zealand and the Pacific to their distribution zone.  

Allan Foster paid due tribute to the people who worked in Australia and New Zealand at Power Equipment.  

The Premier Regional Business Awards were presented at a black-tie function in Melbourne.  

Power Equipment is the exclusive and authorised Australian, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and South Pacific distributor of Yanmar Marine and Industrial diesel engines.  

Power Equipment is also the exclusive authorised distributor of JCB DieselMax engines for Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific.  

Power Equipment additionally distributes the Yanmar-powered MASE diesel marine generators and Gori high quality folding sailboat propellers.  

The company recently relocated from Scoresby to their own purpose-built premises at Lynbrook as a result of strong and sustained growth.
