Thogus was co-founded in 1950 by Jack Thompson (the grandfather of Thogus president Matt Hlavin) and Walter Gus. Thompson and Gus combined their names to name their company: Thogus.
Thogus (pronounced toe-gus) began as a tool and die company, and then grew to become an injection molding company. Through constant innovation and visionary leadership, Thogus has evolved into a modern company that offers creative, reliable solutions.
Thogus molded the first nylon and polyethylene plastic tube and hose fittings in 1950. Since that time, the family-owned company has grown exponentially. The Thogus family of companies now contains multiple companies:
- Thogus: Plastic injection molding and fittings
Rapid prototyping and manufacturing
Radiation Protection Technologies
- JALEX Medical:
Medical devices, Regulatory and Quality Consulting
