We are Tharstern

We're a market leading software company providing Management Information Systems to the printing, packaging and label industries.  Our MIS solutions are used at nearly 700 sites and by more than 7,000 users worldwide.  

History

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.

"The management buy-out has given our customers solid reassurance about our commitment to their business and to the industry in general - they know that we really are in it for the long haul."

Managing Director
