Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) October 7, 2009
Hastings Deering have been given a round of applause from Bean Media Group who hand-selected Hastings Deering to be featured in their latest publication, Australia's Best Building, Construction and Mining.
Sydney-born Harold Hastings Deering was responsible for founding what was originally known as Hastings Deering Engineering Pty Ltd after he returned from duties as a fighter pilot during World War I. The company was created with the intention of acquiring the rights for distribution of Exide batteries. As appointed manager of the new distributorship, Harold became the sole metropolitan distributor for Sydney Ford in 1935, as well as the Alice Springs Ford dealership in 1936.
Seen as a pioneer in his field, Harold was committed to providing the necessary machinery for the needs of the ever-developing Australian industry. He expressed his views for a couple of years in the widely read 'Faith in the Future' newspaper column.
Remaining at the forefront of the industry, the company early realised the potential of franchising and continued to expand and branch out with many different facets. At one stage, Hastings Deering was responsible for building most of the airport service vehicles throughout Australia, which led to substantial export opportunities throughout Asia and the Middle East.
