Our company’s journey began in 1952 as Thompson-Stolee Company, Inc. Since then, we have grown organically and through mergers and acquisitions with exceptional companies. These connections have helped us become who we are today: Border States.
We believe that unstoppable businesses shouldn’t go it alone, which is why we have dedicated more than 70 years to providing quality products, innovative services and flexible solutions to ensure they don’t have to.
Mergers and acquisitions
Our deep history of growth through mergers and acquisitions has helped us gain industry knowledge, grow our product expertise and fulfill our customers’ needs.
