For many years, Keech has sustained an active involvement in the Bendigo community. Keech’s sponsorship and leadership of the Bendigo Inventor Awards (Keech CEO Dr Herbert Hermens was Chairman of the Bendigo Inventor Awards Committee for 4 years) has assured the success of this initiative.

Keech Australia believes strongly in being a good corporate citizen, establishing and maintaining strong relationships with the local communities in which Keech operates.

Not only does Keech play an active role in community support for Bendigo (where Keech Head office and foundry reside), but also in each state of Australia through our national sale coverage.

Keech shares its expertise and knowledge with the wider business community, as a member of the Bendigo Business Council (Dr Hermens is currently Deputy Chair). Dr Hermens was also a member of the Board of Bendigo TAFE until its recent amalgamation with Kangan.

Dr Hermens is a skilled communicator experienced in speaking to large audiences. He was recently selected alongside other business leaders to present at Bendigo’s TEDx conference, speaking on 3D advanced manufacturing and the impact of this revolutionary innovation on manufacturing and other industries. He also speaks on the topic for industry groups and as part of the iBendigo Digital Enterprise Program.

Keech participates in the Passions and Pathways program and staff at the Innovation Centre and the Foundry complex regularly run tours for educational and industry purposes.
