Vennings was first established as a blacksmith business in 1904 by “Bill” Venning. 

Over the years Vennings have diversified into farm machinery, fuel distribution & vehicles, amongst other things.
 
In 1951 the business started to change direction toward its current form today. Vennings, the longest family owned and operated Bulk Grain Handling Manufacturer in Australia was started in 1951 by Keith and Dudley Venning. In 1951 Keith Venning obtained an auger and a header side bin from Rodda Implements in Geelong Vic., a field bin from Comando in Ballarat and truck bins made by AD Redding in Kadina. Since this time Vennings have been retailing bulk grain handling equipment from other companies like Maitland Engineering, Reimann's (Eudunda) and Hatchers (Moonta).
 
Today the company is directed by the next generation in Robert and Richard Venning with the third generation following in line. Robert's Susan and David together with Richard's Mark, Andrew and Karen are helping to shape the company's future.
 
Since Vennings opened their doors, bulk handling practice has developed from bags to bulk and beyond with a vast array of equipment to suit any requirements in the bulk grain handling field.
