Yesterday Mike DeWine, Ohio's Attorney General, made a special stop at Thogus and it's family of companies to learn more about Manufacturing that is happening right here in Northeast Ohio. Our sister company, rp+m , was able to educate Mr. DeWine and his team on additive manufacturing and our technology platforms.
"We love having visitors like Mike tour our company, because they are interested in learning more about manufacturing. It's becoming sexy again and Thogus, rp+m and JALEX are at the forefront of it," states Matt Hlavin, CEO of Thogus, rp+m and JALEX Medical. "Not only was he able to see all of the technology we have invested in on our mass production floor, but he was also able to learn about the metals and polymer 3D Printing platforms we have. We were able to show Mike how we have grown from a traditional manufacturing company into an advanced manufacturing company!"

The start of the New Year is not just a time to start a new diet or exercise regimen, it’s also a great time to examine quality in your facility and documentation.
Here are some questions to consider:
- Are your quality records in order?
- Are you following all written procedures and work instructions?
- Is all of your training and training records up to date?
- Have you had an internal audit recently? If an audit were performed today, what would be the outcome?
- Is it time for your management review?
- Are there areas you see that need improvement
It’s a new year and a great time to think “Quality” at your company. We know it seems like a lot, however, it’s good to get underway now. Let’s work together to make sure we are all part of the solution and not the problem!
