Thogus is a full-service injection molding company located in Avon Lake, Ohio, USA. Founders Jack Thompson and Walter Gus established Master Mold & Die in 1950. The tool and die shop led the founders into a whole new world of plastics. In 1958, they changed the name to Thogus Products Company, a combination of the last names Thompson and Gus, and molded their first nylon and polyethylene plastic tube and hose fittings. Now, under the leadership of Jack Thompson’s grandson, Matthew K. Hlavin, the family-owned business is thriving in an industry, location and time when most are not. Thogus turned to rapid prototyping in 2009 when it purchased two machines for fused deposition modeling. The concept was strengthened further when it formed Rapid Prototype and Manufacturing LLC (rp+m) as its own company in 2011.
