Don’t miss your chance to nominate for the 2022 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards

25 May 2022

The Victorian Chamber is delighted to be the delivery partner for the 2022 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards and encourages manufacturing businesses to nominate before the Tuesday 31 May deadline.


Celebrating its 20th year, the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards recognise the achievements of manufacturers across the state and acknowledge the critical role that manufacturing plays in Victoria.

The awards recognise individuals and companies that embrace new technologies and techniques, are export-focused and excel in business innovation. 

This year’s theme, ‘Making it in Victoria,’ highlights the importance of local manufacturing and the breadth of products, technology and equipment produced in the state.

Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive Paul Guerra said, “The Victorian Chamber is proud to once again be the delivery partner for the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards in its 20th year. We look forward to recognising and celebrating the outstanding achievements of manufacturing businesses and individuals across the industry.

“Manufacturing is a $30 billion industry for Victoria and has long been the cornerstone of our state’s economy and way of life. It provides a diverse range of jobs, boosts exports and contributes significantly to Australia’s economic growth.”

Nominations are encouraged across 14 categories, including ‘Young Manufacturer of the Year’, ‘Woman Manufacturer of the Year’ and ‘Leader in Industry 4.0’.

Three new categories have been introduced this year to celebrate leadership in the low carbon economy, outstanding responsiveness to COVID-19 and leadership in diversity and inclusion.

“The evolution of global manufacturing, coupled with the effects the global COVID-19 pandemic has had on business operations, has given rise to new opportunities for Victorian businesses to think innovatively, use advanced technologies, expand research and development and create new partnerships.

“We are already home to the largest number of engineering graduates in the country and spend the most on research and development, bringing innovation and accessibility to every Victorian business. This sector continues to evolve in new and exciting ways, and we are proud to celebrate these achievements at this gala evening,” Mr Guerra said.

Winners will be announced at the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Gala Dinner on Tuesday, 26 July at the Palladium at Crown.

Award nominations close on Tuesday, 31 May.
