Comet Windmills Australia Pty Ltd consists of talented people who helped make the company what it is today.
David Catchpole (Managing Director)
Comes with a wealth of engineering knowledge as a qualified Aircraft Maintenance Engineer having done his trade and worked repairing and overhauling jet aircraft engines at Qantas Airways for over 12 years. David grew up in the country and has a true passion about the history of farming in Australia and the huge part that windmills have played in that. He has also had a varied business life working as the Motorsport Manager at the world renowned Phillip Island GP Circuit for over 7 years and Event Manager for Rally Australia prior to starting at Comet Windmills. David has a firm desire to rebuild the Comet brand, provide customer service and the ability to service the industry in a timely fashion. He is proud to be associated with such an iconic brand that Comet is.
Brad Welsh (Assembly Supervisor)
There is only one word to describe the enthusiasm and interest that Brad has for all things windmills, first and foremost Comet and that is PASSION, PASSION (sorry that’s two words!) Brad lives and breathes the Comet brand and has an understanding of the mills and associated pumping requirements like no other. Brad oversees all of the Comet assembly line from the machining of all parts ex the foundry to manufacturing our in house parts from the original Sidney Williams drawings which we still use to this day. They have stood the test of time and proven why Comet is Australia’s leading mill.
Taylor Seaman (Apprentice Fabrication)
Working under the closetful eye of Brad Welsh, Taylor comes to Comet as a 4th year apprentice in fabrication. He started with Comet in late February and has shown a genuine interest in windmills and the history behind the iconic Comet brand.
Ange Myer (Comet Administration)
Has a rural background, grew up in the country and also spent 14yrs in the public service and relocated 2 years ago from Albury NSW to Macksville where in her spare time runs a small farm near Taylors Arm. Ange commenced working at Comet January 2016, and embraces the challenge of learning about windmills, working with the rest of the employees and the interaction with the clients.
