Welcome to Thillens
THILLENS IS NOT YOUR TRADITIONAL CASH LOGISTICS PROVIDER
We offer our clients an innovative and unique business model that revolutionizes the secure movement of cash more effectively and efficiently.
Thillens is the largest independent armored car service provider in the Midwest, offering comprehensive cash logistics services to our growing list of clients in the financial services, gaming and retail industries. We continue to be a longstanding member of the national leading armored car organization - the Independent Armored Car Operators Association (IACOA). This affiliation allows Thillens to extend our service footprint well outside the Midwest cities and states where we have trusted and reliable contract relationships.
State-of-the-art technology systems are in operation throughout our organization, allowing us to communicate and collaborate with our clients in real-time.

In 1932, Mel Thillens, Sr. owned and operated a currency exchange in Chicago. His clientele consisted of mostly factory and WPA workers. To eliminate tracking mud over his new office carpet, Mel conceived of the idea of bringing money to the workers. Thus, the first mobile armored car check cashing service was invented.
Our secure fleet of armored vehicles are 5G-enabled and feature GPS tracking.
Our clients have secure access to our robust client portal for reporting, compliance and easy online ordering.
