We engaged with Thornton and Lowe whilst looking for a company who could provide us with expertise and support in managing and the writing of a bids and Tenders. We have found working with the team at Thornton & Lowe to be 1st Class - they are organised, have great attention to detail, and have created some superb looking packs for us. I would highly recommend Thornton & Lowe to any company looking for support and guidance in bid writing.

TieTa UK Ltd


I just wanted to say a big thank you for having both Adam and Jo work on this tender for us who provided a really good submission. I couldn't have asked for more re the content and quality of their tender responses. Their attitude, putting policies together that we didn't have and ease of working with turned what would otherwise have been a really difficult and stressful few weeks for us into the polar opposite! Adam even uploaded everything for us and managed to get it submitted on Friday evening - practically 3 days early! Please convey my thanks to them both - you have 2 fantastic employees flying the flag for T&L"

Steve, Director


We worked closely with Tom and the team on a recent framework submission for Manchester City Council. A difficult process was made very simple - nothing was too much to ask. They even got involved with parts of the bid that were not their responsibility to ensure bid compliant. T&L bid writing expertise is second to none and extremely professional. Highly recommended by the Karmo team. A big thank you to all at T&L.
