VIC Minister for Manufacturing, Exports and Trade Richard Dalla-Riva has encouraged industry associations and companies to nominate locally-based manufacturers for the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame 2011.

Mr Dalla-Riva says nominations are now being sought for Victorian manufacturers who provide innovative, sophisticated, world-class manufacturing solutions.

“Victoria’s manufacturers are innovative, quality-driven and committed to their industries, and these awards highlight true excellence,” Mr Dalla-Riva said.

The 2011 awards include two new categories, one for entrepreneurial excellence by a company and the second for a young manufacturer working with enabling technologies for manufacturing such as information and communication technology, nano and microtechnology, and biotechnology.

Successful Hall of Fame award winners represent the depth and capability of Victoria’s manufacturing sector working in areas such as aeronautics, automotive, telecommunications, printing, textiles, scientific instruments, health, packaging, marine, recycling and food.

“Since their inception, 106 companies, 22 honour roll recipients and seven outstanding young manufacturers have been inducted into the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame,” Mr Dalla-Riva said.

Award nominations will close on February 28.

Award winners will be announced at the Hall of Fame Awards night to be held on May 26 during National Manufacturing Week.
