Fillauer Executive VP and TRS Founder Retires

Bob Radocy, executive vice president of Fillauer TRS and founder of TRS, will retire from full-time employment on December 31. He will continue as a consultant for Fillauer providing research and development, customer support, and public relations services.

Radocy incorporated TRS in 1979 and, with the help of a Small Business Association Handicapped Assistance Loan, began manufacturing the Prehensile Hand in 1980.  Bob’s passion for recreational activities can be seen in the many devices he has developed including the Criterium Plus, Black Iron Trainer, Downhill Racer Ski, and JAWS to name a few.   He sold the company to Fillauer in 2019.

“On behalf of our entire team, I would like to thank Bob for the tremendous impact he has made at Fillauer and, most importantly, for the upper limb loss and limb difference community” said Traci Dralle. “His passion, determination, and ingenuity have made the everyday possible and inspired dreams to become reality for over 40 years. While we will miss Bob’s daily presence in the office, we are grateful for the opportunity to continue our partnership with him in new and creative ways.”
