"For many years, I had a home on Hilton Head Island but traveled across the United States for work. I told people that my wife and kids lived on Hilton Head, and I unfortunately lived in a hotel. I had enough of this lifestyle choice and, together with my brother, made the investment to establish RX Industries on Hilton Head Island. Today, I'm very pleased to say that my business is expanding and my company's growth is happening in a place that I love. We look forward to RX Industries continuing to grow in the defense, aerospace and medical sectors. We also are thrilled to be working with Beaufort County's school district in an effort to expose students to the exciting world of precision machining." -RX Industries Owner Tom Rougeux
