From there Kerr’s Northside Hire expanded taking on major contracts from Australian Cement Limited, Pivot Fertilisers & Danum Engineering. With this expansion Kerr's grew out of their premises in Separation St and in October 1988, Kerr’s moved into its new home, a purpose built hire building on the corner of Dunn & Edols St where they still reside today. While moving into their new building Kerr’s Northside Hire installed a computer system that could handle the high volume of customers it had now attracted.
In 1998 Kerr’s expanded its staff to a total of twelve, including a new hire controller and mechanic so the company could better service the growing market in the region. The move of Gary’s son Jarrod to the position of hire controller in 2003 brought a wealth of experience and knowledge of the equipment from the workshop into the front office. In 2005 Jarrod was appointed Hire Manager.
In early 2006 Kerr’s expanded it’s sales & service side of the business to include a larger showroom that now displays ready to use equipment for sale for the building and construction industries. This is complimented by Kerr's service and repair division where Kerr’s already services and repairs several well known brands such as Flextool, Husqvarna, Dingo, Crommelins, Gerni, Graco & Wagner.
On Friday February 2nd 2007, Kerr's celebrated 25 years in Geelong, inviting all its customers a long to a tradie breakfast. The day included a mini trade show with displays from all its current suppliers as well as t-shirts & stubby holders given to customers & staff that attended.
