Counter Intelligence: Our story

The only source of knowledge is experience.” Albert Einstein

And John Murray, owner of Counter Intelligence, has 40 years of experience in Home Improvement. John started Counter Intelligence in 1986 fabricating and installing Corian and Laminate Countertops.  But then as now, there was a lot of competition for your business. To stand out in the crowd, Counter Intelligence relied on Innovation, Technology and Craftsmanship. These core principals are still our driving force in providing you with a “better experience” for your remodeling project.

Our Innovations in the countertop industry soon became standards for our competitors to adopt:

  • We were one of the first companies to use digital templating for faster, more accurate measuring.
  • We invested heavily in state-of-the-art machinery to fabricate stone and quartz countertops with greater speed, accuracy and flexibility.
  • Water Saws, Jet Saws and CNC Edging and Profile machines give us the ability to produce upwards of 80 kitchen countertops a day.
  • We added a Master Plumber and Master Electrician to our arsenal of services to more easily coordinate completion of countertop installations.

Our evolution continues by using our vast experience and knowledge to become a Single Source Company to remodel your kitchen and bath project. We offer factory direct cabinets, flooring and fixtures along with in-house Design and Project Management. And we are including more innovation. A new Cloud Based Project Management System will enable you to quickly and easily follow every step of your remodel. You can track changes in material, labor and work schedules from your Desktop, Laptop, Tablet or Smart Phone.

Visit, call or email us today. We are ready for your test and look forward to earning your trust.
