    Hunter Manufacturing Awards (HMA) is a non profit organisation motivated by a mission to promote best practices in manufacturing. 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.

Its annual awards provide an opportunity to recognise and acknowledge the contribution made by local manufacturing companies towards economic growth, job creation and the social fabric of the Region.
