In June, 2009 Dana Fitzpatrick Celebrated 55 years with Fitzpatrick & Weller.
"I worked summers at F&W, when I was home from college and loaded box cars and trailors with shoe last blocks. Filling dry kilns was part of the job.. In 1954 I started working in the Salamanca, NY plant as an assistant to my late brother Jess, doing payroll, sales and other administrative duties, while learning the business. It was great experience".
Now leading the company into the 21st centrury, Dana is still involved in the day to day activities.
