The state’s manufacturers are being invited to apply for the 20th anniversary edition of the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Victorian government said the awards – which will be held for the first time since 2019 – would feature three new categories: Leader in low carbon economy, Outstanding responsiveness to COVID-19, and Leader in diversity and inclusion.
Manufacturing contributes approximately $30 billion to the state’s economy, and employs 260,000.
“Victoria’s manufacturing sector is a cornerstone of our economy, creating jobs while driving future growth and innovation,” said industry support minister Martin Pakula.
Company applications include manufacturer of the year in small business, medium and large business categories (under 20, between 20 and 300 and over 200 employees respectively.)
Individual awards include Honour Roll – Service to Industry, Woman Manufacturer of the Year, and Young Manufacturer of the Year.
