Great Reviews

Thoro helped our customer transform two of their lines to be re-launched. We assisted them by performing press tests with different coating options so they could find “the right look.”

Both lines were launched recently to great reviews and as a result, Thoro received the “2012 Partner of the Year” award. As an added bonus, one of their customers said “you guys ALWAYS impress and you continue to raise the bar for all of the competition.

If you are ready to re-launch or have a new launch, let Thoro help you achieve the right look.
