As a devout man of faith, David dedicated his company to God and named Him Chairman. The original business plan was a scripture from the Old Testament, Proverbs 3:5-6 which says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths”.
With a focus on quality, service and speed, Thompson Technologies quickly began to grow. The company’s success has been remarkable, earning several industry growth awards over the next decade.
