WICHITA, Kan. - March 21, 2019
Thrasher Inc., formerly known as Kansas Basement and Foundation Repair, has re-located from El Dorado to their new office and warehouse space on 8853 E. 37 St. in Wichita.
Thrasher, headquartered in Omaha, Neb., purchased fellow Supportworks and Basement Systems dealer Kansas Basement and Foundation Repair on Aug. 1, 2018, after operating in adjacent territories for over 20 years. Supportworks – owned and operated by the Thrasher family – provides products and business tools to a network of more than 130 foundation and concrete repair dealers nationwide.
Thrasher's presence will not only expand its services to the Wichita, Topeka and Western Kansas markets, but will allow positive company growth and employment opportunities for local communities. Thrasher on-boarded all 30 former Kansas Basement and Foundation Repair employees in August 2017 and has grown to 47 employees to-date.
“We pride ourselves on providing remarkable experiences for homeowners. One way we do that is by having a thorough and intentional hiring process,” says Dan Thrasher, Thrasher's President. “We're very excited to introduce our services and for the opportunity to create more jobs in Wichita.”
Thrasher closed on the former Vatterott Educational Center, in June 2018, and began operations in January 2019. The 30,000 square feet building sits on five acres equipped with an office space, warehouse and training room.
“Working alongside Keller Williams and Conco Construction made our vision a reality.” says Gary Mackey, General Manager for Thrasher's Kansas operations. “We currently have nine crews operating out of Wichita and plan to increase that to 11 by June.”
Founded in 1975, Thrasher has helped homeowners preserve and improve the value of their homes using proven basement waterproofing and structural repair solutions. Additionally, Thrasher provides concrete leveling and egress window installation; all with industry-leading products, installation techniques and warranties. Thrasher serves Nebraska, Kansas, Western Iowa and Northwest Missouri from its headquarters in Omaha, Neb., Wichita, Kan. and Kansas City, Kan. For more information, visit www.gothrasher.com.
