At Fitzpatrick Manufacturing, we’re people focused.
We invest in our team members, and we invest in our relationships with customers. Those types of investments are the ones that provide the biggest dividends over the long term.
We promote an open work culture. We share financial details with our entire team, encourage process improvement to save money, and give incentives to our employees through our generous profit sharing plan. Because our employees are directly connected to the company’s performance and share in its gains, they feel a strong sense of ownership, accountability, and responsibility to do their best. We’ve built a culture that draws out the best in each employee, which simultaneously facilitates his/her personal growth and the company’s growth.

Our employees are hyper-focused on continuous improvement. We firmly believe in Takashi Osada’s wise words, “If the process is right, the results will take care of themselves.” Our team members have the unique ability of being able to see the forest AND the trees. We can assiduously focus on the details while at the same time evaluate the overall big picture and make improvements to our operational efficiency. This is evident in the design and layout of our facility, the processing of jobs, the treatment of our employees, and maintenance of our equipment.
Our company has many long-term employees, and our turnover is very low when compared to other job shops. We have a structured training program that offers on-the-job training in addition to both on-site classroom training and outside classroom instruction. We have a classroom on-site, and our employees are “on the clock” when they attend classes.
As featured in Modern Applications News, all of these ideals and concepts were united underneath one roof when we moved into our facility in October 2001. Click here to read our article in MAN Magazine.
