Purdue TAP/Vincennes University add southwest Indiana manager
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Adam Auffart has been named business and account manager for a partnership among Purdue University's Technical Assistance Program, Vincennes University, and the Dubois County's economic development group known as Dubois Strong.
The partnership agreement began in April and runs through March 2015. It is the second iteration of a partnership that originally began in 2007.
Auffart will serve manufacturers and businesses in Dubois County and southwestern Indiana with technical services from the two institutions. The program will offer a wide range of assistance, including workforce skills, productivity improvement, product development, sustainability and quality.
"The partnership and Adam Auffart's dual representation role will provide a more efficient and relevant set of business solutions in a single point of contact," said L. David Snow, director of Purdue TAP's Manufacturing Extension Partnership Center.
Auffart, who lives in Jasper, will be based at the Vincennes University-Jasper Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center, which will open in March 2013. He also will have a satellite office in Evansville.
He can be reached at 812-630-6965 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Auffart formerly led sales efforts for Jasper Rubber Co. He has a bachelor's degree from Indiana University.
