We officially celebrated our 170 years on the 19th November. Something we have been waiting all year for… not just because we wanted to throw a party (though we love that) but it was our opportunity to ‘tip our hat’ to everyone that has been involved in Halliday Engineering for the past 170 years.
What made this night extra special was the launch of ‘Engineering Excellence, The Halliday Story’, written by Dr Stella Barber. Stella and her team, created a detailed history of Halliday, dating back to 1852, when our founder Charles Halliday arrived on Australian shores.
We were also very honoured to have Commodore Brad Smith speak about Halliday’s contribution and reliability to the Australian Defence community. We were extremely touched by his words and greatly appreciate this recognition.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our MC Neville Teague from ADROITA. What an outstanding job. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Please take a look at the highlights video from the evening. It will give you a good sense of who we are, our history, and how highly we regard all the people who have been involved in Halliday Engineering for the past 170 years.
