Jon Dumas has been in the custom engineered parts industry since 1996. He got his start in the infancy of stereolithography and found his passion of working with product development engineers and in new product development, especially with new technologies.
Jon then had an opportunity as a business development manager for a CNC machine shop focusing on aerospace/defense CNC machining and electro-mechanical assembly. It is here that he came across Thixomolding while trying to help a customer reduce part cost and where he met Greg Raleigh – and his interest in part weight reduction started.
In 2004, Jon created GTI Manufacturing to specialize in part sourcing, new process technologies, and supply chain management services for military, defense, automotive, and consumer products OEMs.
Jon is a native Delawarean but now resides in Houston, TX with his wife, 2 children, and 3 dogs.
