The Nationals Member for Lowan Hugh Delahunty today called on companies and individuals in the Lowan Electorate to nominate for the 2013 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame awards.
“The Hall of Fame awards showcase the most innovative and productive of Victoria’s manufacturing industry,” Mr Delahunty said.
“Established more than a decade ago, the awards are designed to demonstrate how locally based manufacturers can take on global markets.
“The awards highlight successful manufacturers who have innovated, diversified and embraced excellence.
“While Australian companies are facing challenges domestically and globally, there are many leading edge Victorian manufacturers that are carving out new markets.
“During its history, the Hall of Fame has recognised 127 companies, added 23 recipients to the Honour Roll and acknowledged nine Young Manufacturers of the Year.
“These award winners span the diversity of Victoria’s manufacturing sector: aeronautical, automotive, telecommunications, defence, printing, textiles, scientific instruments, health, packaging, marine, recycling and food.
“The 2013 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame is now seeking individuals for nomination to the Honour Roll and for Young Manufacturer of the Year.
“Award categories also include Company of the Year for small, medium and large businesses,” Mr Delahunty said.
Nominations will close on Friday, 15 February 2013.
The awards will be announced at a gala presentation ceremony on Tuesday, 7 May 2013 at the Palladium Ballroom, Crown Entertainment Centre.
