Our company, Border States, began in 1952 as Thompson-Stolee Company, Inc. Since then, we’ve grown organically and through mergers and acquisitions with exceptional companies.
These connections have helped us become the company we are today: Border States. We’ve built a solid foundation to provide quality products, services and solutions. The goal is clear: Provide supply chain solutions for electrical contractors; industrial operations; and power, natural gas and telco utilities.
