Our company traces its beginnings to 1977 when Les Lyall, who had held sales positions with various boiler manufacturers, started his own rep agency. Eventually, he teamed up with Mike Thresher and in 1988 Lyall, Thresher & Associates, Inc. was officially born.
The Lyall, Thresher team today consists of Dan Thielmann, Warehouse Manager; Joe Hudec, Inside Sales and Support; Darek Nowak, Technical Sales; Jason Murphy, Josh Stelter, Chris Swade, and Mike Thresher Outside Sales.
Today our experienced staff calls on plumbing and heating distributors, supports those distributors and their principals with “pull-through” coverage of plumbing and heating contractors, mechanical contractors, and consulting engineers. To support our sales efforts, we offer a variety of training classes for contractors, distributor personnel, and the engineering community.
Our warehouse in Elk Grove Village, IL is stocked with a variety of products to help all of our customers realize their sales goals. Products we stock include infrared heaters, indirect water heaters, gas and electric boilers, system feeders, chemical feeders, hydronic and domestic recirculation pumps, high-efficiency ECM pumps, packaged booster systems, heat exchangers, expansion tanks, polypropylene venting systems, and repair parts for many of the products we represent.
