MADISON, OH, September 21, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Forrest Thompson has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
As the owner of RT&T Machining Inc., Forrest Thompson has been providing tool and machining services for clients for more than 40 years.
Prior to starting RT&T Inc., Mr. Thompson worked for another company, Kennametal, which made the same parts for 17 years. He started out tooling, and after gaining 17 years of experience, he decided to branch out and start his own company with only $15,000. Initially, Mr. Thompson wanted to have a couple of machines operating out of his garage to make extra money, but by 1984, RT&T Inc. had grown into a larger business that employed 25 people at its peak. The company now has 12,000 square feet of shop floor space, and 100 plus pieces of equipment.
Per the company's website, RT&T Inc. offers a wide range of services to clients, including repair of many standard tools, and computer-aided drafting (CAD) services to design and create new tools. Using industry-standard techniques, RT&T Inc. can create intricate tools down to the smallest detail, and to demanding specifications. "RT&T Machine is a family-owned business located in Mentor, Ohio and we recognize that every customer has unique needs, and we are committed to providing each with a tailored solution. Today's competitive environment has forced us to respond to challenges and opportunities more rapidly than ever before. With ever increasing demands, we have sought to acquire some of the latest 'state of the art' technologies available, to ensure our competitiveness."
One of Mr. Thompson's greatest strengths is his self-taught skill set. Whenever he needed to learn something, he would read about it. From there, he would put his lessons into practice.
Apart from his business life, Mr. Thompson is a devoted family man, as the husband of Ellen, and father of Tina, Kimberly, Tami, and Paul James. He has 10 grandchildren: Jason, Krystal, Brittney, Nick, Joey, Tad, Rikki, Robbie, Forrest and Parker, and 13 great-grandchildren: Lorelai, Preston, Easton, Rikki, Charlee, Harper, Grayson, Marlie, Joey, Jace, Jackson, Keagan and Katen.
