Kaeser Compressors celebrates employee milestones

Kaeser Compressors is acknowledging the service of two employees this year as they celebrate spending 30 years with the company

Two Kaeser Compressors Australia employees are being recognised for their 30 years of service this year – national sales manager Mark Dudman and service support coordinator Craig Firth.

Thanking Dudman and Firth for their commitment, Kaeser Australia managing director Peter Eckberg says: “We are grateful for your dedication and long-standing loyalty to the company as well as the industry.

“It is unusual these days for people to remain with one employer for such a long period of time. Over 70 per cent of the Australian workforce has been in their current position for 10 years or less. So, in this environment, for a person to reach 20, and then 30, years of service is absolutely outstanding.”

In 1993, Dudman was employed as a sales engineer for Kaeser Australia. Based in the Sydney branch office, he progressed to the role of branch manager then national sales manager.

Decades of experience mean Dudman is well-known and respected in compressed air circles. Asked about his time in the industry, he says the key to navigating the ever-changing market is to focus on the customers and always check that the product solves the problem.

In that same year, Firth started with Kaeser as a storeperson at the Australian head office in Dandenong South, Melbourne. Gradually moving through various roles into service support, he has learnt every aspect of the service and technical side of the business.

Always wearing a cheery smile, Firth is an integral part of the Dandenong site and his product knowledge is invaluable. When asked about his future career plans, he replied: “Where do I see myself in 10 years? Well I have been here for 30 years, so I’ll give you one guess!”

Kaeser Australia looks forward to celebrating more employee milestones in the future and is currently recruiting for a variety of positions across the country. See for more information.
