More than 30 years have passed since Tharstern was formed in 1984 by Keith Harrison, who at that time was working as a Financial Director for a printing company. Mr Harrison recognised that there was an opportunity to develop an estimating package for printers. He started the company from home and subsidised it whilst still working as a consultant.
In 1991, Keith McMurtrie joined the company, bringing to the company a unique blend of commercial and technical drive, resulting in a number of ‘firsts’ in the industry.
In 2014, Tharstern was bought in a management buy-out from the family of the original founder, who set up Tharstern 30 years ago. Technical Director Antony Lord, Sales Director Lee Ward, and Managing Director Keith McMurtrie acquired a significant ownership stake in the business and retain direct day-to-day running.
Tharstern are proud of our heritage and achievements, but this change in ownership provides security and continuity, as well as a platform for future growth. This move retains our independence, brand and identity as a recognised world leader within the printing and allied industries.
