Fitzpatrick Mfg. Co. once again sponsored a student team from Oakland University's Department of Human Resource Development during the winter semester of 2016. This was the fifteenth semester of working with Oakland University on this truly unique program. Our facility serves as a laboratory to help bridge the classroom instruction with real-life industry situations. The students from Oakland University came to us very well prepared to take on an overview assessment of our company’s shop floor operations, with a particular focus on our repeat job box system. This class and Professor Doman’s insight once again proved to be a positive asset for both the students and our company.
