On behalf of Aquatec I would like to say that getting Thornton’s to provide management reports and business consulting has been the best thing we ever did. Moving from a “standard” accounting practice that wasn’t really giving us any proper advice to Thornton’s helped us transform our business and gave us a crystal clear picture of our business health on a month to month basis. Overall a great company to work with, would highly recommend them.
