Joe Thomas at Knight's Precast

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. – Knight’s Companies is proud to announce the promotion of Joe Thomas to general manager of Knight’s Precast, Tekna Corporation and Sovereign Steel. Thomas comes to the role with 32 years of experience in the precast concrete industry.

Previously, Thomas was the regional manager of Knight’s Precast and focused on plant operations. Now, in addition to plant operations, he will manage the estimating and engineering aspects of Knight’s Precast, Tekna Corporation and Sovereign Steel.

“At Knight’s, I’ve always been surrounded by great people, and I will continue to lean heavily on my peers to learn and grow more in these new areas,” Thomas says. “With our combined skills and knowledge, I’m confident we can improve workflow processes and better serve our customers.”

Joining Knight’s Precast in 1999, Thomas was originally drawn to Knight’s because of its reputation as a growing family business. During his time with the company, he has watched it triple in size. To maintain that growth and success,  he believes consistent communication is key.

“I try to be 100 percent clear on my expectations and goals with my team,” Thomas says. “And communication is a two-way street,  I want them to be open with me so I can become a better leader, too.”

Thomas is based in Summerville and will travel to the Knight’s Precast location in Richmond Hill, Georgia, weekly.
