Nora Toure: Jackie, could you let us know about your background and what brought you to 3D printing in the first place?
Jackie Sosnowski: I graduated in May 2016 from John Carroll University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in Management. Initially, I attended the university as a Biology major with an interest in cancer research. I was drawn to the position at The Technology House (TTH) because of their involvement in the medical industry.
Nora Toure: What was your very first experience with 3D Printing?
Jackie Sosnowski: I had an awareness of 3D printing but by no means was I an expert. I remember a close friend in college using a MakerBot machine to print various items out of his dorm room and I was intrigued about the process. My very first hands-on experience was during my onboarding at TTH. Being able to see an order of several parts printed in less than 24 hours had me looking forward to my involvement in this industry.
Nora Toure: Could you explain furthermore what The Technology House is and the services that you are providing?
Jackie Sosnowski: The Technology House (TTH) is a contract manufacturer located outside of Cleveland, Ohio. The company started in 1996 with one seat of Pro-E modeling software license and one Stereolithography (SLA) machine from 3D Systems for rapid prototyping.
TTH has since grown capabilities in additive as well as production and have expanded into two facilities. In 2008, TTH established a subsidiary, Sea Air Space Machining & Molding (SAS), which holds ISO certifications: ISO 9001, AS9100C, 13485, NADCAP, and ITAR as well as WBENC and WOSB certifications.
I joined TTH in 2016 as a Project Manager. In my role, I maintain and generate customers who are buyers and engineers in various industries. Most of our customers do not have a strong understanding of 3D printing.
It is then my job to determine the best process for their part(s). I can look at how their part is being used, the material requirements, and their budget. From this information provided, I am able to offer the most suitable option(s).
