Radon Defense Midwest
National Radon Defense Midwest purchases Thrasher, Inc's radon division.
Omaha, NE - March 30, 2020
Omaha, NE – National Radon Defense, the largest network of independent radon companies, announced today that they have recently acquired Thrasher, Inc’s Radon division. The new entity will be called, National Radon Defense Midwest.
Thrasher has been a dealer of National Radon Defense (NRD) since 2009. They built a successful radon division but decided to focus on their core services of basement waterproofing, foundation repair, and concrete leveling. During that same time, National Radon Defense built a dealer network that serves 34 states and 2 Canadian provinces. The strategic purchase of Thrasher’s local radon operation will assist NRD’s goal of continued growth and innovation and to be the preferred choice for radon services across North America.
Many of the talented people from Thrasher have agreed to join NRD Midwest. “Thrasher’s installation crews and other key employees are passionate about radon reduction services and are a part of our team. Because of our long partnership with Thrasher, the transition will be seamless for Thrasher’s customers,” said Curt Drew, owner of National Radon Defense and National Radon Defense Midwest.
“We’re excited to have our own local operation,” said Curt. “This strategic purchase is a great opportunity to grow a successful local business, help protect our community against radon exposure, and provide an exceptional training experience for our dealers.”
It will be a good outcome for Thrasher customers, too. “Thrasher has worked with NRD for a long time. They’re leaders in the field. We’re confident they will take really good care of our customers,” said Thrasher president, Dan Thrasher. “Radon mitigation is extremely important, especially in our part of the country.”
Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. A study by the EPA shows that people living in Nebraska and Iowa are at high risk when it comes to radon exposure.
