Keeping manufacturing strong

Ray Keefe is passionate about keeping manufacturing alive in Australia.

Successful Endeavours has certainly had its fair share of success at the Casey Cardinia Business Awards, and this year is no exception.

The Narre Warren based company was the winner of last year’s Business and Professional Services Category. It won the same category in 2016 and 2015.

Now it has been recognised in the Manufacturing category.

Successful Endeavours has also been nationally recognised with a PACE Zenith Award in 2016 and the IOT Impact Innovation Award 2018.

The firm designs electronics based products that are intended to be manufactured in Australia. This encompasses infrastructure grade industrial controls, power, water and waste monitoring and management, electrical distribution equipment, telemetry devices including the Internet of Things (IoT), security systems, automotive controllers, communications equipment, and even a mobile phone.

Founded by Ray Keefe in 1997, Successful Endeavours’ aim is to provide affordable world class product development services that allows its customers to be locally and internationally competitive in their chosen market.

“At Successful Endeavours we recognise that better products using competitive technologies are the lifeblood of Australian electronics manufacturers, and good product development delivers better products,“ said Mr Keefe.

“We are committed to doing what it takes to deliver better electronics products for your manufacturing business. We have the skill set and the mindset to ensure your market opportunity is realised and your production profits are maximised.“

The judge was impressed with the number of “very impressive goals“ Successful Endeavours had achieved over the past five years.

“The company has certainly won many awards and is a valued regular entry in these awards.“

The judge praised Successful Endeavours’ “great involvement with the community at a variety of levels, both from a networking/supporting other businesses to more charitable activities where time or money is being given“.

“A truly great focus on employees, not only for their development and personal growth, but well-being in general.

“Innovative practices are clearly embedded within the business and obvious to see. Working on sustainably-driven projects is a great way to implement sustainable practices beyond what a typical company can do.“
