For more than 65 years, Thogus Products has been recognized as a world-class custom injection molder and contract manufacturer. Over the years, the Avon Lakes, OH processor has been able to gain an expertise in the processing of a variety of plastic resins; specializing in highly engineered materials. Since its founding in 1950, Thogus has evolved from a shoot-and-ship molder to a company full of engineers ready to service customer’s product development needs, providing complete end-to-end solutions with direct-to-retail product packaging and shipment.
Today, Thogus is able to provide a wide variety of manufacturing services, including a Class 7 Clean Room and robust automation integration, and a long list of support services, such as supply chain coordination, in-house tooling support and on-site prototyping and rapid production. This major evolution would not have been possible without a dedication to continuous improvement and innovation – and that starts with empowering employees.
To successfully create a culture of continuous improvement, Thogus has worked to empower employees at all levels of the organization to identify and assist in continuous improvement initiatives. From their monthly communication meetings that highlight ongoing initiatives and recent successes to their unique manager alert cards that allow employees to identify opportunities for continuous improvement, there is no shortage of great ideas being generated. Employees at Thogus are trained to seek out opportunities for innovation and improvement and are rewarded and recognized for their efforts.
