"I have been employed as the Director of Plant Operations at the Wilkes County Board of Education for 4 years now and as part of my duties, I am responsible for the purchasing of cleaning supplies and equipment, paper products, and anything to do with the overall appearance of our schools. Thornton Brothers, Inc. is a major supplier of these type products to our facilities. I have found that Thornton Brothers continues to build their outreach and supply base in other aspects of building care. They have quality products at very competitive prices, which is a plus in this day and time with financial cuts taking place across the board. The personnel at Thornton Brothers are friendly and very knowledgeable of all their products. They even go the extra mile in providing a solution to cleaning, cost savings on products, and providing seminars to introduce new technology and products for the cleaning industry. Cleaning of any facility takes teamwork and Thornton Brothers is a great member to have on ones' team."

"Over the past two plus years, I have built a business relationship with Thornton Brothers and its staff, namely Mr. John Morris.  He and I have such a great rapport that I consider him and Thornton Brothers as an extended part of the facility and our success in the industry.  The strength Thornton Brothers has in the local market is definitely an asset to our business.  On numerous occasions, Mr. Morris has facilitated obtaining the advice, input, and instruction of factory representatives to aid us in better serving our residents, families, and staff.  I consider myself and all parties involved with Family Life Enrichment Centers fortunate to have such a great vendor as Thornton Brothers, and a representative such as Mr. John Morris.  I have yet to be dissatisfied with the service they provide to us."

I have also found that their staff is more than willing to go the extra mile to provide quality service. Our sales representative is Rick Ayers and I have found him to be very knowledgeable of the products and equipment Thornton Brothers carries. He takes pride in his ability to train others on the proper cleaning techniques to best utilize equipment and products.
