Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame nominations open

Posted by Josette Dunn on 22nd February 2010

Now in its 9th year, the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame showcases the excellence that continually elevates Victoria to the next level of manufacturing.

The awards include excellence in manufacturing, the industry nominated young manufacturer of the year, and lifetime achievement by individuals who have made outstanding contributions to sustained manufacturing excellence.

Since the hall of fame’s inception in 2001, 96 companies, 19 honour roll recipients, two lifetime members and six outstanding young manufacturers have been inducted. The Hall of Fame represents Victoria’s depth of talent across sectors including aeronautical, automotive, printing, textiles, health, chemicals, food, packaging, recycling and marine.

Previous inductees in the food industry include such companies as Clyne Foods, Hakubaku, MasterFoods, Patties Foods, and Roma Food Products.

Hall of Fame inductees are entitled to display an exclusive Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame hallmark in their promotional materials. This symbol is promoted by the State Government in its dealings across Australia and internationally at trade shows, on trade missions, in Government publications and on Government websites.

Every inductee also receives a commemorative plaque to display at their premises, and is profiled on this Victorian Government Hall of Fame website. Each company’s listing gives a summary of the company and is linked to their own website, where available. The profile showcases the achievements of the company and promotes its products and services to potential new customers, both locally and globally.

This year’s inductees would be announced during a ceremony later this year.

Nominations close on 28 February, 2010 and can be made by industry associations or individual companies. For more information, visit or contact Alison O’Keefe by email on alison.o’
