“This is an ideal time to join Thomas,” said Kim. “The market opportunity and growth potential for the company and its customers are tremendous as industry 4.0 evolves. Thomas has the products, the technology, the people and the heritage to grow even stronger as the leader in the field, and I’m proud to be able to help drive that growth.”
