company history

Border was formed in 1990 by a consortium of independent merchants as a support company. We started writing the first version of CounterAct in 1992 and have been developing and selling our own software ever since. 
















Border is part of the Hermitage Innovation Group of companies.


Border is based in Monmouth on the border between England and Wales.


We have merchant customers all over the UK- builders’ merchants, plumbers’ merchants, timber merchants, roofing merchants, ironmongers and specialist kitchen and bathroom suppliers.


Our customers range from small single site family run businesses to large multi-branch organisations.


We only sell CounterAct to suppliers to the building industry; we are not involved in any other markets.


Border is a service member of the Builders Merchant Federation (BMF) and a business service supplier to the National Merchant Buying Society (NMBS).
