As of July, Hoosier officially has a new Journeyman Patternmaker to add to our already impressive list of skilled employees. Phillip Bauman completed his 10,000 work hours and classes at Ivy Tech Community College over the past 5 years and received his Journeyman Certificate from the Indiana Department of Labor last week.
Phillip Bauman has been a part of the Hoosier Pattern family since May of 2012 when Keith hired him at the end of his senior year of high school. Phillip was initially hired to paint the outside of the building. One day it had started raining and Keith told Phillip to come inside and shadow some of journeymen already out on the shop floor for the day and he has been here ever since. Phillip is currently one of our CAM programmers and occasionally can be found in the Hoosier Pattern booth at some of the trade shows we attend.
Congratulations, Phillip! Your hard work and dedication to Hoosier Pattern over the past 5 years has been truly appreciated. We are proud of your work ethic and are grateful to have you on our team.
