Thomas Publishing Co.
Holst-Knudsen and Thomas Publishing, publisher of the famed Thomas Register of American Manufacturers, have been at the forefront of digital technology in publishing. Thomas Publishing was among the first to use CD-Rom technology in the 1990s. It abandoned the print Thomas Register in 2006 in favor of ThomasNet, which is now a leader in helping manufacturers engage in e-commerce around the globe.
