About Us


Our Founder - G.M. Garabedian

Thorndike Mills was founded by Gary Garabedian in 1925.  He fled here at the young age of 15 after being ousted from his homeland during the Armenian Genocide. 


Gary and Mary

Together, Gary and Mary raised a family and worked at making Thorndike Mills the success it is to this day.  They instilled strong work ethics, and proved that hard work results in success.
