Patrick Bailey

Welding Supervisor, Sylvan Sport

Patrick joined SylvanSport in June, 2012 and is currently the Production Team Leader. He received his welding degree from AB Tech.

“I really like problem-solving and I think ultimately that’s what’s drawn me to advanced manufacturing, it’s always about how you can improve and just that constant making things better. Not working harder but working smarter, and I think that’s been the nice thing that has helped challenge me and keep me interested. I’ve tried a few other things; this is where I feel comfortable.”

“Honestly advanced manufacturing is very rewarding; you get to do stuff with your hands. If you are mechanically minded it’s a good fit and it’s a pretty secure industry because ultimately manufacturing is not going anywhere.”
