 Almost There

Almost There

Thomas FX is in the middle of restructuring our organization, beefing up manufacturing operations with more highly skilled technicians.

We have been conducting "hands-on" work auditions for short listed manufacturing Lead Hand candidates this week and are almost ready to make some decisions.

By the end of next week we hope to have hired and trained a completely new manufacturing crew.

We have set a gruelling pace all week and are now down to the two final candidates that will round out our team.

Once the manufacturing team has been put in place we will resume interviews for Operations Manager, and Customer Care Coordinator, positions yet to be filled. 

Then, with the Halloween retail season about to begin we will be hiring customer service and makeup effects consultants to work in our bricks & mortar store.

Stay tuned for more news.

Putting "Cheap" fluid into your special effects equipment is FALSE ECONOMY.

Our service department has been active this year repairing equipment damaged by technicians that are using the wrong types of fluids in their equipment. 

You would not put oil into your gas tank, or gasoline into your windshield washer reservoir, so why would you use the wrong fluid in expensive special effects equipment? ..... to save a couple  of dollars? 

We only sell high quality fluids from reputable manufacturers, and we always recommend that technicians use the manufacturers' recommended fluids. FYI: One brand is not necessarily "exactly the same" as another, so don't be fooled by a sales pitch.

Equipment repairs will cost hundreds of dollars. In some cases equipment has been so badly damaged by cheap fluids that they are simply beyond economic repair.

In the past week alone, we have serviced 7 expensive professional snow and fog machines, for owners whose technicians chose to use cheap fluids as a substitute for the proper recommended fluids. 

While we are always ready and willing to repair customer's gear, we would prefer to help them avoid expensive problems in the first place. IF you really want to "save" money, use the manufacturer's recommended fluids in your equipment.
