“Hadek Protective Systems B.V. has had a long and very positive relationship with Thorelli & Associates. Since beginning our collaboration with Tom Thorelli and his colleagues in 2001, the firm has provided very effective support and services to Hadek in various matters, including immigration and work visas; labor and employment law; corporate legal formalities; and contract negotiations with our business partners on a more frequent basis. I look forward to our continued collaboration.”

“Dimeco is a family owned French company and has been manufacturing flexible metal forming production processes for more than 60 years. Around 65% of its revenue comes from exports to over 45 countries.

In 2015, Dimeco decided to incorporate a sales office in Chicago, IL in order to develop a source of potential distributors throughout the country, as well as effective service management.

We first met Tom Thorelli during a FIM conference in Paris and we immediately understood how important his support would be, in order to achieve our goal. Step by step, our project has become a reality, thanks to his services, including company incorporation; preparing a visa application for a Dimeco employee and his family, who was relocated from France to the US to run the US company; sales terms; limited warranty; work permits; etc.

All these services have been effectively completed thanks to a very close relationship with his very talented team.

We still use Thorelli’s services on an regular basis, including the redaction of different contracts, such as distribution contracts, the analysis of specific purchase terms, etc.”
