About Us

We are Hoosier Pattern

In November 1997, Keith Gerber (now sole owner) and two others opened Hoosier Pattern, Inc. in Decatur, Indiana. Since opening our doors, Hoosier Pattern has seen continual growth in the pattern making business. We are known for our reputation for quality workmanship and commitment to “On-Time Delivery,” which has helped us gain recognition as a premier pattern shop.

Our rising status has allowed Hoosier Pattern to build strong relationships within the manufacturing industry and to continue to invest in new equipment and technology to provide unparalleled service to our customers. Today, we employ almost 50 men and women and have expanded our facility to meet our customers’ current and future needs.

Why Hoosier Pattern?

Offering a wide variety of the most advanced tools and technology, Hoosier Pattern is able to provide our customers with the best in quality, pricing, and timing. Our highly knowledgeable and experienced staff will help you find the tooling that’s right for your unique business or project and will even assist your company in finding “out of the box” solutions when needed.

Hoosier Pattern encourages constant research for new products and procedures to stay profitable and further our capabilities.  The most recent additions of a laser scanner and Rapid Prototype Sand Printer truly put Hoosier Pattern on the cutting edge of technology.

Partner with a Winning Team

Our employees take pride in the work that they do. The quality of every job that leaves our shop reflects that dedication to precision and quality. The Hoosier Pattern staff is well-educated and up-to-date in their knowledge of CNC machines, hardware, and software allowing us to cater to our customers' needs.

Several of our employees even have firsthand experience working in foundries - making them keenly aware of the urgency that foundries face on a daily basis. This experience and depth of knowledge give our team the upper hand when it comes to understanding and meeting our customers’ needs and expectations.

Hoosier Pattern also strives for excellence in every job when it comes to "on-time delivery". If we promise it, we deliver no matter what the cost. We know that every second counts, and we take that seriously as we work to meet specific deadlines that your project demands. This is often accomplished thanks to the help of technology.

Our ability to perform GoToMeeting events on the fly helps us to maintain a close working relationship with not only our customers but tooling managers and project engineers as well. GoToMeeting events also work to keep all projects moving forward and to meet customer needs in a timely and efficient manner. In addition to keeping the project moving forward, it also allows for Hoosier Pattern to "red-flag" any areas of concern and work with our customers in real-time to collaborate and provide suggestions for the project.
