After a highly competitive nomination process, Duratray International and its CEO, Carolina Hinojosa, were confirmed as finalists for the 2022 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards recognise the achievements of manufacturers across the state. This year’s theme, ‘Made in Victoria’, highlights the importance of local manufacturing and the breadth of products, technology and ideas produced in the state.
Duratray was one of three finalists in two different categories: Manufacturer of the Year (small business) - alongside Amaero Additive Manufacturing (winner) and Dual Chelate Fertilizer, and Leader in Global Supply Chain Partnerships - besides Nissan Casting Australia (winner) and Starward.
Duratray's CEO, Carolina Hinojosa, was one of three finalists for the Woman Manufacturer of the Year. The Women Manufacturer of the Year seeks to recognise women who are making renowned contributions to the manufacturing industry with established and long standing-career in the industry, plus excellence in their leadership and innovation approach.
"We're proud to be the only company to have reached the finalist status in three distinct categories of the awards. The design and technology behind our products, our ongoing search for innovation, and the hard work of all our team members are the main reasons we can attribute to achieving this important milestone", said Marcelo Medel, Duratray International Managing Director.
The awards winners were announced at the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame gala dinner on Tuesday July 26th. Duratray team members attended the event joined by the Consul-General of Chile in Melbourne, Ms. Nasly Bernal.
