The Victorian Minister for Manufacturing Exports and Trade, The Hon. Richard Dalla-Riva MLC, recently announced the winners of the 2012 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards, at a ceremony that brought together over 600 industry leaders.
It is with great pride that NHP Electrical Engineering Products (NHP) can announce themselves as one of those inductees into the prestigious Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame.
Established in 2001, the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame recognises companies and individuals who have the dedication, creativity and energy to take Victorian manufacturing to the next level. Companies that display a sustained contribution to manufacturing excellence over the past five years are eligible for induction into the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame.
Alex Coslovich, NHP’s Director - Product Quality, Engineering & Manufacturing, was called on stage to accept the award on behalf of all at NHP.
“We are honoured to be inducted,” said Alex. “Australian manufacturing is facing some of its toughest challenges in the current economic climate and we feel that our business model allows us to create jobs within this sector and genuinely “add value” to locally assembled products. It is NHP’s objective to continue to cultivate this philosophy and this will allow us to remain competitive well into the future,” he said.
Lloyd Thomas, NHP’s Managing Director, CEO, was also present on the evening. “Being inducted into the 2012 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame is really a true reflection of the great team we have at our Manufacturing facility in Laverton Melbourne, who, day-in and day-out, produce excellence in everything that they do,” he said.
The Hon. Richard Dalla-Riva MLC said the awards were an important part of recognising the strength and success of Victoria’s manufacturing capabilities. “We have examples of manufacturing companies here in Victoria that lead Australia in sectors such as aerospace and defence, engineering, food processing, fashion and textiles and others that continue to be successful in challenging economic circumstances and these awards celebrate that leadership and innovation,” he said.
NHP would like to congratulate the other seven companies who were also inducted on the night.
