Curt Doric

Safety Manager

FABCON employee for 17 years

There are many things about working at FABCON that Curt Doric enjoys, but if there’s one thing he really appreciates is the opportunity he’s been given.

“I’m a living example that there’s opportunity if you’re willing to put in the work,” he explains. “I run a huge plant with anywhere from 30 people when we’re slow to 130 when we’re full speed and I do not have a college education. If you are willing to prove yourself and go above and beyond, FABCON is a great place to be.”

Initially bound for the military, Doric was hard of hearing so he couldn’t join. He started at FABCON working in Quality Assurance, a position he held for 12 years, and never looked back. He was promoted to a foreman position after that, and then to production supervisor. He has been the production manager for two years.

We asked Doric a few questions about his job and what he likes best about FABCON. Here’s what he told us:

My daily duties:“I’ve got all the supervisors underneath me for everything we produce. I help work through any bottlenecks, give direction and guidance to all of my direct reports, coordinate meetings, trainings, orientations and planning for up and coming projects.”Best part of working at FABCON:“I love it because it’s challenging, it’s rewarding and the people are great. There’s a sense of expertise and ownership to everything and our work is really top notch. We have a strong team – we would fail if we didn’t work together – but we do. We all help each other and keep each other going. I also like that there are a lot of projects happening all of the time so it’s never dull.”What I appreciate most about FABCON:

“In addition to the opportunity I’ve been given, I appreciate the steady income. One of my only goals in life is to support my family. My job at FABCON offers us stability so my wife can stay at home with our kids.”

Why I would encourage others to work at FABCON

“We have a wide variety of cultures here and there is lots of opportunity. Thepeople are great and it’s very rewarding work.”

When he’s not working, Doric spends time with his wife and three sons, ice fishing, snowmobiling and making rustic furniture.
