Fought & Company, Inc. was proud to select Patrick Montgomery to represent our company in the construction of a new pedestrian bridge located in El Macho, Panama, organized by Bridges to Prosperity or B2P. Bridges to Prosperity works with isolated communities to create access to essential health care, education and economic opportunities by building footbridges over impassable rivers. B2P measures success by the long lasting impact training and bridge projects have on the reduction of rural poverty due to isolation. Patrick's trip was made possible by Fought & Company, Inc., and by our partner Ironworkers Local 516. Patrick's trip to Panama lasted for a total of two weeks.
Patrick was born in 1982, in Seattle Washington and is a Pacific Northwest native. He has been an Ironworker since 1998 and is currently a 4th year (final year) Apprentice Mechanic at Fought & Company. Mechanic is our version of Fitter or Assembler and is the highest achievable level as a fabricator at Fought. Patrick fabricates high rise components and bridge girders, and completes assembly checks of bridges prior to shipment. He takes tremendous pride in his work ethic and was very excited, and grateful for the B2P opportunity.
