For nearly 25 years, THK America Inc has been manufacturing components in the United States at its Hebron, Ohio facility. This year, the manufacturer joined forces with MVPvets in assisting, preparing and transitioning military veterans for meaningful employment.
More than 70% of THK components that are sold in North America are made in the U.S.A. at the Ohio plant, THK Manufacturing of America Inc. (TMA). U.S.-based manufacturing enables THK to provide more jobs for Americans, reduce lead times, and decrease energy costs related to transport. This environmentally friendly facility even houses a centralized machine coolant recycling system.
Components manufactured at TMA include both conventional and caged ball linear motion guides (LM systems) and actuators, as well as link balls. To enable increased production while maintaining high precision and accuracy, THK recently automated manufacturing processes at TMA.
THK’s commitment to the U.S. market is further exhibited through their sponsorship of MVPvets. Together with MVPvets, THK is helping to assist, prepare and transition military veterans for meaningful employment in life science companies. MVPvet’s mission is to bring veterans, mentors and employers together, through job matching, one-on-one mentoring, online learning, and on-the-ground career-building endeavors.
