In the world of complex contract manufacturing, our Tharsus manufacturing team epitomize the core values and collaborative spirit that permeates throughout our entire business.  The shopfloor is where the magic happens, where hundreds of components meld together to create innovative complex tech products for our customers.

To get to the heart of what makes Tharsus tick, we’ve listened to our colleagues who know best—our dedicated team on the shopfloor. They’re the ones who live and breathe the daily hum of machinery and the bonds forged with their peers.  We recently asked our shopfloor team what makes Tharsus special and here’s what they said, distilled into 12 key insights:

Aim higher

  1. Above and Beyond: It’s not just a job—it’s a commitment to surpassing customer expectations and delivering in every task.  Precision, efficiency, and integrity define our approach as we strive to deliver for our customers.  We aim to do the right thing, every time.  And we challenge ourselves.  Upholding the highest standards of quality is non-negotiable, demonstrating our dedication even in the face of external pressures.
  2. Resilience: When challenge comes knocking, we don’t back down. We stand strong and push through.  Our multi-faceted skill set, characterised by agility, enables seamless collaboration and problem-solving across mechanical and electrical disciplines.
  3. Values-based hiring: Our strength lies in our people.  Each bringing their own skills and perspectives to create a dynamic, values-driven workplace.
  4. Efficiency: With a focus on the end game of volume manufacturing, we seek to remove unnecessary non-value-added work.  We do this through streamlined processes and optimized workflows that results in maximum productivity and minimal waste.

 Think wider

  1. Customer-centric collaboration: Our unwavering focus on our customers places them squarely at the centre of our operations.  Through close collaboration, we actively engage with our customers to not only meet their needs — but exceed them.
  2. Continuous improvement: We’re always looking for ways to do things better. It’s not just a job – it’s a journey of constant improvement.  Efficiency is key. We aim to sniff out waste and trim the fat to make sure our customers are getting the most bang for their buck.
  3. Hunger for knowledge: We’re thirsty for knowledge.  We’re looking for ways to innovate in a fast paced environment.
  4. Flexibility:   Flexibility is key to ensuring we meet evolving demands with ease.  We expect challenges and our flexible attitude means we pivot and adapt to whatever comes our way.

Work together

  1. Unity: We’re a tight-knit bunch.  Teamwork leverages diverse strengths to achieve collective success through thick and thin.  It is a family-like atmosphere.  It’s not just a workplace.
  2. Collaborative spirit: Innovation thrives working together alongside our customers. We’re stronger as a team.
  3. Adaptability: Change is the only constant, and we’re not afraid to find solutions through creativity and teamwork.
  4. Problem-solving process: Challenges are just opportunities in disguise. We tackle them head-on, together, with creativity and grit.

In both the design and manufacturing of complex tech products, it demands nothing short of pioneering talent. Here at Tharsus, through our hard work and dedication, we’re not just delivering technology for our customers—we’re delivering innovation that drives meaningful change in the world.
