2016 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame – Stuart Payne, Honour Roll

The Honour Roll is designed to recognise individuals who have made an ongoing contribution to the manufacturing sector in Victoria. In recognition with his role as the Director of GP Graders, Stuart Payne was inducted into the honour roll for the 2016 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame.

As the pressures of a global market place take hold, Australia can no longer compete in low-skill manufacturing and need to focus on advanced manufacturing techniques. Stuart and the team at GP Graders understand these challenges and have built the business on an innovate culture and reputation for continued excellence. With a clear focus on research and development, GP Graders is at the forefront of the technology in automated fruit grading and sorting and firmly established their position as global market leaders.

Through Stuart’s leadership and the outstanding efforts of his team, GP Graders have been able to achieve sustained success and are deserved winners of this prestigious award.
