PORTLAND, Ore. (BRAIN) — Framebuilder Vanilla Workshop has hired Patrick Gillham as  production manager. 

"Patrick brings a lot of depth in machining, building fixtures, and using, really every frame material. We're always looking to do things better and we also thrive on pushing ourselves. Patrick's skills will help us get radder every day," said Vanilla Workshop founder and lead builder, Sacha White.

Gillham moved to Portland from Beverly, Massachusetts, where he most recently worked with Parlee Cycles as a fabricator. He has been making bicycle frames since 2006 for different brands. After completing a Machine Tool Technology Certificate in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, he began his apprenticeship at Bilenky Cycle Works. He then returned to his home state of New York to work at Vicious Cycles and subsequently Serotta Competition Bicycles.

"Sacha has built a great brand over the years and I'm stoked to be apart of the team. Together we will continue the mission of taking it to 11," said Gillham.
