Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.

Purchase of new compressor

"Thorite were one of a number of potential suppliers contacted to provide equipment for our new shot blast and paint facility.

Throughout the tender process they stood out as being more responsive and helpful than the others. Thorite were happy to work with us to resolve technical queries and identify the right product to suit our needs, making a number of additional visits to our premises in order to ensure our expectations were met.

In particular, a loan machine was provided for our use whilst the selected compressor was delivered, making the transistion to our new factory easier and saving us money on outsourcing processes.

We would definitely recommend using Thorite.
