Tompkins Associates, a leading-edge supply chain and business solutions provider, announced today that the company will begin operating under the new trade name of Tompkins International.

Jim Tompkins, President and CEO, notes that the company is currently known as Tompkins International in Europe and Asia, and that the new trade name reflects the transformation that has occurred over the years in the company’s business. “We have worked with clients to improve their global supply chains for some time now while progressively expanding our capabilities around the world, so it makes perfect sense to mirror this in our name,” Tompkins says.

The company continues to focus on strategic, global end-to-end solutions across multiple industries.

Steven Ganster, Managing Director of Tompkins International Asia, believes the trade name change aligns perfectly with the firm’s mission. “Whether companies are seeking to enter Asia, expand their presence in the region, or enhance their competitive position, strong global supply chains are essential.”

Europe often leads the way in business and supply chain strategy, according to Susan Evans, Managing Director of Tompkins International EMEA. “Multinational corporations are realizing that supply chains are not only cost reduction opportunities, but also vehicles for value creation,” Evans says. “Global growth opportunities are on the rise, and Tompkins is helping to lead the way.”

Launched more than three decades ago, Tompkins has grown into a leading business and supply chain strategies firm. The company continues to solidify its base throughout the world to help clients expand into new geographies through market entry, growth, and supply chain planning and execution.
