What Makes Us Thomas

At Thomas, our guiding principles are illustrated through every action we take and every relationship we foster.

  • Guiding

    As technology pushes our customers outside of their comfort zones, we are there to point them in the right direction.

    To partner with them throughout the process. And to provide the actionable information, ideas, and solutions they need to thrive in the digital industrial economy.

  • Approachable

    Thomas is not so much a company as we are a team of people helping other people do their jobs, advance their careers and grow their businesses.

    Whatever your job title, we’re all here to serve our users and customers. When they feel that way in every interaction, we set Thomas apart from the rest.

  • Enduring

    Thomas has been a bedrock resource for our marketplace through good times and bad for over 120 years.

    No matter how much times and technologies change, our value holds true. While we are proud of our past, we are thoroughly committed to driving the future for our customers, our industry, and our employees.

  • Focused

    Thomas lives, breathes and serves the industrial/B2B world.

    From the small job shop to the Fortune 100 giant, we exist to connect the right buyers with the right suppliers, and to equip everyone involved with the knowledge and information they need to thrive in their constantly evolving marketplace.
