Mike Thornton, Owner Thornton's Crane Service

Mike Thornton built Thornton’s Crane Service from the ground up. From his early years growing up in Oregon and learning about forestry management and landscape management, he came to Abilene after graduating high school to attend Abilene Christian University because of track and field.

You see, Mike was an Oregon state-champion pole vaulter in high school.

(His 1984 record has since been surpassed but he still shares the top 6 all-time ranking in the state). After graduation, he put his physical education degree to work teaching PE at Ortiz Elementary, but he also had a growing family so he started mowing lawns on evenings and weekends through the early 90s.

When it comes to providing top-notch services in west central Texas, look no further than the businesses established by Mike Thornton. With a strong dedication to meeting customers’ needs, Thornton has expanded his reach beyond crane services to offer a diverse range of independent solutions, including tree service, dumpster rental, storage units, and crane service.

He is committed to meticulous execution and ensures that every job is completed to perfection. His pride in his employees and their work is evident in the glowing reputation of Thornton’s businesses, which are accredited by the Abilene Chamber of Commerce and have received an A+ ranking from the Better Business Bureau.
