The Hunter Manufacturing Awards (HMA) will mark their 14th anniversary tonight, October 19 with a gala event at NEX Newcastle.
The event showcases the diversification of companies within the manufacturing sector of the Hunter, Central Coast and Mid North Coast.
This year’s finalists have been notified and winners will be announced, highlighted by the Manufacturer of the Year and HMA Board Award winners, who each receive overseas trips.
An Incentive Prize will also be awarded and all finalists will go into the draw to have the opportunity to win a trip for two people to any city in Australia or New Zealand.
Major Sponsor, Downer, has supported HMA for the past 11 years and Moly-cop who are celebrating 100 years of Manufacturing will be the 2018 Dinner Sponsor.
“Hunter Manufacturing Awards Inc (HMA) is motivated by a mission to promote best practices in manufacturing,” event organiser Carol McEwan said.
“HMA believes this can be achieved by showcasing the achievements of the best to encourage and sustain the aspirations of those who want to be among them.
“HMA works collaboratively with key regional organisations to highlight the achievements of the Regions’ manufacturers and the importance of manufacturing in general.
