teamthoro_spiritThe Spirit of the Entrepreneur Awards program recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of the Inland Empire’s top entrepreneurial business leaders. And this year, Thoro was nominated and one of three finalist for the coveted award in the Manufacturing category.  Below is the official video for the 2011 Manufacturing finalists.

At the black tie award ceremony on November 8th in downtown Riverside, Jan and Macy Steiner along with a select group of Thoro employees, enjoyed a lovely dinner and program featuring the many accomplishments of the business award finalists.

“It was such an honor to be nominated, let alone a finalist among such an accomplished group of business owners and entrepreneurs,” said Jan Steiner. “It just demonstrated the incredible passion and perseverance to succeed in business, even in such challenging economic times. We owe a lot to our great group of dedicated employees and our many loyal customers for our success; and this recognition is as much for them as it is for Thoro. When our customers are successful, then Thoro is successful as well; and we take our responsibility to our customers very seriously. We know that packaging is a crucial element in the success of their product delivery, protection and branding; so we thank our customers for making us successful and share this recognition with them.” –Jan
