Hoosier Pattern had the pleasure of helping Strand Design in helping make the prototype molds for The Fourneau Bread Oven with our 3D sand printers. Watch the video about The Fourneau Bread Oven here.

Here at HPI, we like to think that the "HP" stands for Hoosier Pride.
Pride in the products that we create, pride in our community and pride for our employees and all that they do.
Lots of companies like to do all sorts of flashy PR to draw attention to what they do but that's not our style. Folks who work here go about their business quietly, but we need to acknowledge someone who deserves all of our respect and best wishes.
Derek Scheumann does set up work on our CNC machines. Like all the good people here, Derek takes pride in what he does and goes that one step further. Derek is being deployed along with his Fort Wayne National Guard unit for a six month tour overseas. Words cannot convery the admiration, respect and — here's that word again — flat-out, unabashed pride that we all have for one of our own.
So, please join us in wishing Derek godspeed! All across America there are men and women who quietly go about the business of protecting all of us and put themselves in harm's way so that we may enjoy our hard-fought liberty and freedoms.
But before Derek deployed, we thought we'd send him out with a humdinger of a meat-lovers Smoke Out with all our barbeque masters loading up the tables in the staging area. A good time was had by all, and here are a couple photos to prove it.
Derek is the good-looking one on the right.
Hoosier Pattern believes that a strong commitment to our local community is an essential part of our corporate philosophy.
After all, strong community ties make for strong business practices.
Hoosier Pattern and RH Warehouse recently donated funds to help with the purchase of graphing calculators for the math department at Bellmont High School.
Pictured are Keith Gerber, owner of Hoosier Pattern; Cindy DesJean, Bellmont High School math department chair (with one of the calculators); and Robin Gerber, owner of RH Warehouse.
Like our roots in the community of Decatur, our committment to its well being are always strong. This past weekend saw the anuual Chamber of Commerce's "Spotlight On Decatur" event which highlights exhibits and community outreach from a wide spectrum of local businesses and civic organizations. This is a much loved local event which features information booths and opportunities for residents to interact with Decatur based businesses. HPI takes this event seriously and views it as an opportunity to show who we are and what we do. Our exhibition booth this year was awarded the 2014 "Mayor's Choice Booth" and we are grateful for the recognition. HPI's Kelly Gerber is shown receiving the award form Decatur Mayor John Schultz. Thanks Mayor Schultz!
