Clough named as export hero

CLOUGH Limited patriarch Harold Clough was named one of Australia’s export heroes by the Australian Institute of Export at a recent gala dinner in Sydney recently.

The AIEx award recognises the champions of Australia’s export community.

AIEx (NSW) chairman Geoff Farns-worth said the ‘heroes’ set an example of what could be achieved through persistence, determination and effort.

“These individuals take Australian industry and enterprise to the world stage where they compete with the best the world has to offer,” Mr Farnsworth said.

“For any Australian company to survive and grow these days it must benchmark its performance globally,” Mr Clough said.

“We have done this through exporting our services and constantly matching ourselves against the world’s best.

The Business News Book of Lists 1999 ranks Clough Engineering as WA’s ninth largest exporter with export revenue in excess of $300 million.

Clough Engineering Limited was founded in 1919 shortly after the end of World War I and has grown from a moderate building business in Perth to become a key player in the international engineering and construction industry.

Today the company has six major operations – two in Australia and four in Indonesia – and has recently been involved in the Graham Farmer Freeway project.
