At 40 years of age, Bevan Kearsley was involved in a motorcycle accident. He was left a paraplegic confined to a wheelchair, and then was made redundant from his job. Initially - and reluctantly - Bevan applied for a disability pension but was refused on the grounds he was a qualified carpenter. Bevan subsequently completed a small business course through the Business Success Group, and applied for NEIS which gave him an income for the first 12 months of business. He started a specialty store for doors and locks, with the vision to provide an exceptional display of doors and locks for Toowoomba residents, something that was previously unavailable in the city. The Door 'n' Lock Centre Pty Ltd started in 1995 with only two employees and a one tonne utility to do deliveries. In 1998, the utility was traded for a four tonne truck. In 1999, the company employed a Sales Representative as the majority of business was coming from builders. Branching into other lines such as moldings and shelving to cater to the building industry, the Door 'n' Lock Centre could supply a complete fit-out for a house once wall plaster was up. As the business continued to grow, in February 2002 they had to employ an Office Administrator and a store person. Today the business has grown to a total of eleven employees, two trucks, three utilities and a forklift. Their door display has grown from ten to 70+ doors and stock value has grown to over two hundred thousand dollars, with a multi million dollar turnover. Bevan was awarded the 2004 "Hall of Fame" ABBi for the most successful and enduring NEIS business of the past ten years.
