Welcome to Hoosier Pattern
At Hoosier Pattern, we believe that innovation drives productivity. We have always relied on these practices to deliver on-time and premium-quality products to our customers throughout the United States and the world. We understand that industries are evolving, and staying up-to-date with the latest technological advancements is an essential part of our success. Even though innovation is the driving force behind our product development, our commitment to manufacturing excellence will forever remain our highest priority. Regardless of how big or small the size of your project is, we will continue to be committed to manufacturing excellence.
In November 1997, Keith Gerber (now sole owner) and two others opened Hoosier Pattern, Inc. located in Decatur, Indiana. Since our humble beginnings, we have seen continual growth in our CNC manufacturing and rapid prototyping business. We’re known for our quality workmanship as well as our commitment to “on-time delivery,” which has helped us gain recognition as a premier pattern shop. We understand our customer’s demand for expedient delivery times, and product excellence is a must, and this expectation is our driving force behind our day-to-day operations.
We invest heavily in our technology. Currently, we are one of the only service providers to own and operate multiple 3D sand printers in house. We have added a 5-axis machining center, four Doosan machining centers, one Doosan 4-axis horizontal machining center, and a robotic milling cell for machining sand molds. Both foundry tooling and 3D printed sand follow all of our rigorous quality-control systems throughout each stage to ensure the industry’s highest possible standards.
We’re fortunate to have strong relationships with our manufacturing partners. We are continually striving to stay in communication with our partners throughout both the sand printing and tooling process to ensure the best possible results. An example is our ability to perform remote conference meetings. This helps us to maintain a close working relationship with not only our customers but with tooling managers and project engineers as well. These virtual events keep all projects moving forward, in order to meet customer's needs in a timely and efficient manner.
