Pact Group named as a Finalist in the 2019 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards
30 April 2019
The awards celebrate innovative and visionary businesses working to keep Victoria’s manufacturing industry strong. The theme for the 2019 Manufacturing Hall of Fame is Industrial Evolution – highlighting the resilience of Victorian manufacturing and the people who drive the industry, supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs.
Viscount Rotational Mouldings (VRM) was nominated for developing rotationally moulded plastic (RMP) noise walls. With installation partner Aus Group Alliance, VRM jointly hold the worldwide patent and have completed multiple freeway noise wall and parapets projects throughout Australia and the Netherlands including Victoria’s Level Crossing Removal Project (Caulfield to Dandenong) Sky Rail – one of the Victorian Government’s major urban infrastructure initiatives.
The Hall of Fame has been running since 2001 and recognises Victorian manufacturers who have made an ongoing impact on the industry through innovation, investment and trade and supply chain connections. Victoria’s manufacturing industry contributes more than $30 billion to the state’s economy annually and employs nearly 280,000 people – more than any other state.
Minister for Jobs, Innovation and Trade Martin Pakula said, “We know that recognising the outstanding achievements of the state’s manufacturing industry is important, and the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards are a vital part of this.”
“Our manufacturing industry is innovative and internationally competitive, with strong growth in exports, business confidence and capital investment over the past year.”
The Awards will be announced at the Hall of Fame gala dinner on 14 May 2019.
