KAPP Engineering named WA business of the year

KAPP engineering has taken home top honours in the 2010 Telstra Western Australian Business Awards, also winning the businessowner Micro-Business Award.

KAPP EngineeringKAPP Engineering, launched in 2005 by four entrepreneurial engineers aged between 23 and 28, provides world-class engineering services and products in the field of industrial automation and process control to clients across Australia and overseas. KAPP Engineering specialises in electrical engineering work and has designed train lifting and washing systems for Taiwan’s high-speed rail project.

The Balcatta business was announced the Telstra Western Australian Business of the Year last night at the 18th Telstra WA Business Awards after earlier winning the businessowner Micro Business Award.

Telstra Business Group Managing Director and Ambassador for the Telstra Business Award Deena Shiff said that Western Australian winners of the five Awards categories were chosen from hotly-contested fields and all had sound business strategies to continue their current growth.

“KAPP Engineering should feel a great sense of pride because the calibre of the 20 finalists in this year’s Awards was very impressive, reflecting the strength of Australia’s small and medium business sector,” Ms Shiff said.

The KAPP Engineering team – comprising equal partners Kieran Sadlier, Amir Tanady, Praveen Paul and Peter Parlongo – chose to concentrate initially on Perth’s metropolitan market when competitors were focused on big resource projects.

KAPP Engineering provides a diverse range of services including designing and commissioning engineering solutions, reselling hundreds of different automation products, project management and training services for clients such as the Water Corporation of WA.

KAPP Engineering Managing Director Peter Parlongo said winning a Telstra Business Award would recognise the company’s passion for providing excellent customer service and reward the whole team for their hard work, dedication and professionalism.

“We are living proof that four-way business partnerships can be successful and we hope to provide inspiration to young entrepreneurs who may be a bit hesitant to take the plunge and start a business by themselves,” he said.
