The Counter-Action Story 

Counter-Action was founded in 1990 by two local Newfoundland transplants, and provided general wood-working services. After a few years of wood-working, Counter-Action narrowed its focus down to countertops, vanities, and kitchens. In 1997,Counter-Action moved into the company's present location at 1195 Franklin, Blvd. in Cambridge, where the team continues to serve the local market.

In 2011, two brothers, Chris and Marty Legein purchased the business, and with the guidance of one of the original owners, are carrying on the company tradition of providing quality products at affordable prices
