In this unprecedented time, Thorpe wants to express its dedication to maintaining a safe and clean workplace for our employees, and consistent service for our customers. We must all take action and do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. To effectively combat this, it’s imperative we unite with our communities and implement procedures that prioritize those around us.
