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.

OUR HERITAGE

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.
