Royal Mfg. Co. recently announced the passing of its international sales manager, Tom Twining. Twining was involved in a fatal car accident outside Beijing, China, during a recent trip to visit customers and friends.
Prior to joining Royal, Twining worked for Chemtool for several years as well as Castrol. In addition to a degree in chemistry, he had more than 30 years of experience in the lube and grease industry as a sales engineer.
