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.

I found the event very interesting and wished I had set a side two days as opposed to half a day. I enjoyed the event and had some good meetings. I wish I had planned myself better and attended on both days and attended more of the workshops. I liked the set up and layout as it was a lot more intimate than other events I have attended. I think the workshops and conferences are important as I feel we should all be talking with each other and sharing ideas in order to move this industry forwards, in spite of all the hurdles we face.Fenton Smith, Managing Director, Boss Print Ltd.
Happy to support new events that keep print alive and kickingBarry Pearson, Project and Product Manager, Nitecrest.
