Begun in the mid-1800s, Thompson has been and remains one of the largest mahogany importers in the US.

The president of the company, Don Thompson (not related to the family that started the company), is a big supporter of the IWPA, the International Wood Products Association, which lobbies against countries own export bans and against selective import restrictions and has fought for years against listing mahogany on CITES.

Don Thompson fought against the idea of certification for years, presenting and speaking out at conferences around the country.

In 2000-2001, Thompson imported bigleaf from Madelongo Madeiras Ltda., Sorriso, Mato Grosso; Madeiras Bomsucesso Ltda. Sorriso; Affonso Ditzel & Cia Ltda., Parana; Jordani Comercio de Produtos Manufactura Dos Ltda.; and Slaviero Trading Comercio Internacional de Madeiras Ltda., Sao Jose Dos Pinhais, Para.
