Thermofilm Australia, a designer, manufacturer and distributor of innovative heating products for more than 25 years, has been awarded the 2014 Manufacturer of the Year Award (Small Business) by the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame.

Based at Springvale, an outer Melbourne suburb, family-owned Thermofilm employs about 20 staff.

Its key products are the award-winning Heatstrip electric radiant heaters and a range of radiant and convective indoor heaters, all of which are designed for commercial, residential and institutional markets.

The Heatstrip Classic range is exported to numerous countries throughout Europe and the US and in 2013 it was awarded the coveted Australian Business Award for Product Value.

Thermofilm managing director, Bob Reynolds said: “We have always strived for innovation and quality. Our products are designed and developed by an engineering team that has extensive experience in research, prototyping, testing and product approvals to ensure world class quality.

“All Thermofilm products are designed and supplied with an emphasis on environmental impact. This may relate to new designs and technologies to improve the efficiency and reduce running costs and also the recyclability of product components and packaging.”

The Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame recognizes innovative Victorian manufacturing organizations, which have risen to the current challenges facing the sector.

VIC Minister for Manufacturing David Hodgett said: “Victoria’s manufacturing industry is in transition, but this year’s talented group of innovators are meeting the challenges through technology, increased productivity and ingenuity.”

The two other 2014 Manufacturer of the Year Award recipients were SRX Global (Large Business) and Future Fibre Technologies (Medium Business).
