Boss Polymer Technologies has been inducted into Australia’s Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame in recognition of its innovative solutions and export projects.
Victorian state Minister for Manufacturing, Exports and Trade Richard Dalla-Riva inducted Boss Polymer Technologies into the Hall of Fame at an awards dinner attended by 800 representatives of the state’s leading manufacturers.
Norman Mills, Managing Director of Melbourne based Boss Polymer Technologies, said induction to the Hall of Fame was a surprise – and an honour. “The world of manufacturing is not about glitz and glamour – we tend to analyse the business challenge and get down to work on a solution,” said Norman Mills.
“So, it was a delight to learn that the work done by our 25 member team is recognised by our manufacturing peers as making a valuable contribution to both technology and our economy. We thank the South East Melbourne Manufacturers’ Alliance for nominating our company for this prestigious award.
“We recognised many years ago that Australian plastics manufacturers could not compete with Asia at the commodity end of the market. We concentrate on the technically challenging end where custom engineered polymer solutions can improve design and reduce costs, while delivering a more environmentally sustainable outcome,” said Norman Mills.
In 2006, the Society of Automotive Engineers – Australasia awarded Boss an Automotive Engineering Excellence Award for its co-extruded ExWeld self adhesive tape system.
