Nominations open for Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards

Published: 11 May 2022

Home grown manufacturers are encouraged to nominate for the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards, marking the 20th anniversary of the prestigious awards.

The awards recognise the achievements of exceptional manufacturers across the state and acknowledge the key role manufacturing plays in Victoria.

‘Making it in Victoria’ is the theme for this year’s awards, which highlights the importance of local manufacturing and the breadth of products, technology and equipment produced in the state.

Established in 2001, the Hall of Fame Awards recognise individuals and companies that embrace new technologies and techniques, are export focused and excel in business innovation.

Nominees will be recognised across 14 categories including ‘Young Manufacturer of the Year’, ‘Woman Manufacturer of the Year’ and ‘Leader in Industry 4.0’.

Three new categories will be introduced this year to celebrate adaptability in the industry, including: ‘Leader in low carbon economy’, ‘Outstanding responsiveness to COVID-19’ and ‘Leader in diversity and inclusion’.

Manufacturing in Victoria supports more than 260,000 jobs and contributes around $30 billion to the local economy each year.

Winners will be announced at the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Gala Dinner on Tuesday 26 July at Crown Palladium.

Nominations for the awards close on Tuesday 31 May.
