IDEA Names Newest Member of Tech Affiliate Program

ARLINGTON, Vir. — Today IDEA announced a new member to its Tech Affiliate Program, Thomas Product Data Solutions. Thomas, headquartered in New York City, has been in business for over 120 years. They focus on serving both manufacturers and distributors in the industrial and construction marketplaces to increase sales opportunities, share data effectively with their partners, and focus on digital marketing strategies that promote a positive digital customer experience for the design & construction communities.

In the future, this affiliation will be able to allow IDEA to reach out to even more manufacturers and distributors, giving them a wider array of options as they look to bring richer and more detailed product information to their specifying and sourcing clients. “We have seen an increasing demand for a deeper level of product information, like BIM, from the electrical design and construction community,” said David Bandi, Director of AEC/BIM Solutions at Thomas. “We are looking forward to bringing our experience in electrical products to help manufacturers create and maintain the highest quality BIM data for their distributors and end-users.”

“This has been a banner year for IDEA’s Tech Affiliate program,” said Mike Wentz, Executive Vice President of IDEA. “We’ve made great progress welcoming a number of new affiliates that understand our business and its unique needs. In particular, Thomas’ exceptional ability to enable manufacturers to deliver rich product data like CAD and BIM from a scalable cloud-based platform stood out to us. Thomas is a very welcome addition to our Tech Affiliate family.”

The IDEA and Thomas affiliation went into effect on June 15th. For more information about Thomas and their products and services, please visit
