A shift in focus
After years of working on every project, Greg injures his knee and is unable to work in the field during recovery. Greg's focus shifted to working on the business and surrounding himself with the best people he could find. This shift caused a growth spurt and the comapany expanded to serve most of Nebraska and Iowa. Picture here Greg is working at a home show and has enlisted his father Merle Thrasher to help.
First office building
Thrasher grows into their first official office and warehouse at 66th and Grover in Omaha, Nebraska, and begins serving homeowners across the entire state of Nebraska, Western Iowa and Northwest Missouri.
Basement Systems network
Joining the Basement Systems dealer network brough access to patented products and comprehensive training and support. This also led to a name change to Thrasher Basement Systems.
New company name
Thrasher changes its company name to Thrasher Basement Systems, Inc.
A permanent facility
After over 20 years of officing out of their house, Greg and Nancy invest in a permanent office space with an adjoining warehouse. This is the first time that all employees report to the same location every morning.
After growing up working on a crew every summer, Greg and Nancy's son Dan returns full time to work in the business.
Moving on up
Thrasher's continued growth requires a move into a new 40,000 square foot building
in La Vista. The new space has a new training center and room for growth.
The Thrasher family decides to invest in manufacturing their own products. This investment allows for product development of new solutions and improvements on older ones. It also gives Thrasher customers the most advanced solutions at a competitive price.
