Thomas zimpfer

managing director


Thomas Zimpfer founded the company in 1999 after several years as an electronic engineer in Asia. After seeing a gap in the market for electronic manufacturing that possessed both the engineering strengths of the West as well as the cost-efficiency of the Asian market, Thomas established Bluechips in the North of Thailand. As the business has grown, Thomas has stayed loyal to this part of the world by overseeing the construction of our new facility and headquarters just 30km from the initial Bluechips production facility. Thomas, alongside the rest of the Zimpfer family, continues to work tirelessly on providing an unrivalled electronic production service to our customers.
