The Adams Wells Manufacturing Alliance (AWMA) held a signing day event for local students that have been enrolled in a work-based learning program in high school and have decided to work full time for these businesses after graduating. Connor Ray came into Hoosier Pattern last summer and inquired about a job. HPI was impressed with his motivation and initiative to plan for his future after high school and hired him. He went to school half day then worked half day and lastnight at the signing day event, HPI signed him as a full time employee. Connor was one of 10 local graduates that signed to work full time with area businesses. Every signee received a $150 signing bonus from the AWMA. Read about the full list of signees here.
Connor will graduate from Heritage High School on Sunday and we look forward to a future with him here at HPI. Congratulations to Connor as well as the rest of the Class of 2019!

Next week HPI employees will be in Detroit at the RAPID+ TCT Show at the Cobo Center Tuesday the 21st through Thursday the 23rd. HPI is excited to be an exhibitor on the show floor for the fifth year in a row now at RAPID. Since Detroit isn't too long of a roadtrip from Hoosier Pattern, we are excited to be sending some employees throughout the week to the show for a little field trip to explore the show floor and get a small taste of what a trade show is like. Hoosier Pattern will be at booth 721 this year.
It's always great to get messages and emails from current and potential customers but the networking and in - person time we is priceless and we look forward to having the 3D printing industry at our fingertips and being able to connect with colleagues at the show.
