Company Information

Programmed is a leading provider of operations and maintenance services across Australia and New Zealand. Our business model is built around our ability to recruit, deploy, manage and maintain a large, directly employed workforce of professional, skilled and semi-skilled staff with a wide range of capabilities. We are proud to efficiently serve more than 10,000 customers every day.

Family members would visit this garden stake to grieve and place flowers whilst waiting for the permanent grave marker which in some cases took over 12 months.

For many years we would walk past these new graves and think surely there is something better than a garden stake, somewhat similar to a tomato stake, to provide a mark for a dear friend lost?

Until the day came when we decided to venture into the manufacturing of these markers ourselves. With the valuable assistance of friends and local industry in Ballarat, we conceived, developed and designed a memorial plaque that is attractive and fitting for use at gravesides and other places that have special meaning.

The original plaques have evolved into the products they are today. We now provide markers for all types of situations and their use continues to grow in response to demand.

The staff includes myself Sally Kennedy, plus my sons Ethan and Zac, and daughter Sophie who are all learning valuable lessons in running a small business with their mother.

I must not forget our golden retriever Stella – without her this little business would never have been conceived.
