In a significant stride towards sustainable business practices, Clarke Energy Australasia, a subsidiary of the global powerhouse KOHLER Company, recently inaugurated its new headquarters in Adelaide, South Australia. The state-of-the-art facility is a testament to the company’s stature as the premier provider of power solutions across Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea.
The new headquarters is a physical embodiment of Clarke Energy’s commitment to sustainability.
