In the small town of Ashburton, nestled in the foothills of Dartmoor, Grey Matter opened its doors in 1983. Our day-to-day was supplying niche software via floppy disk and helping developers write code. Fast-forward to 2023 and Grey Matter has a global footprint with a team of almost 100 experts able to deliver solutions from 400+ vendors.
A lot has changed in 40 years, but our focus remains the same – serving technical clients and providing what they need as quickly as possible.
Thank you to our clients, vendors and staff. We wouldn’t be here without you.

What our customers say about working with us
"Congratulations to the company. I do recall when you folks started and recall purchasing some software tools soon afterwards for my work. Personally, I also purchased items, probably Borland Turbo Basic around 1988. I did have a look through my records and found an invoice from 1995 – amazingly that was for Borland C++!"
"Grey Matter has always provided good help and advice when making software development tool purchasing decisions and I have personally used them for 25+ years."
Bernard Taylor, IGT
