Satisfied Customers: Client Testimonials
Our team takes great pride in the service we provide to our clients. Don’t take it from us – see what some of our Ohio clients think about working with Thrasher:
Thrasher has partnered with us to improve both our infrastructure and service delivery, all while keeping the cost down to our residents. Thrasher’s team is extremely professional, courteous and competent. From their engineers to their grant expertise was one of the best moves our village has ever made on hiring an engineering firm.
We have found Thrasher to be very thorough and effective in their efforts to provide us construction documents in a timely manner for our project together. The team from Thrasher is motivated and would apply any resource toward meeting aggressive timelines while still providing a great product. Thrasher’s attention to detail and their willingness to work cooperatively as a team is particularly impressive. We are pleased to continue working with Thrasher on projects as they arise, due to their motivation and attention to detail.
Steve Hamit and his staff at The Thrasher Group, Inc. have been a pleasure to work with. They are highly professional and responsive to our requests. Their design work for this project has, thus far, met or exceeded our expectations. They have been on-time with all their plan deliveries, while staying within the original scope and budget. They have quickly and effectively incorporated last-minute changes into the design as the project has progressed.
For almost 9 years, I have worked with Erin Wright (Grant Writer) regarding project financing on our CSO, water line, and park projects. She has secured numerous grants and loans for our Village projects and has helped with audits required by the funding agencies. The grants and loans that we have secured throughout the years, has helped our utility rates from having to be greatly impacted.
From the onset of the relationship, Thrasher consistently demonstrated a genuine commitment to performing quality work in the best interest of the customer. My highest remark for Thrasher is that they care. They care in providing the best product possible for their customer. They care about collaborating in a team environment, and they care about maintaining productive relationships throughout the entire process.
