ReActiveMicro is a subsidiary of the ReActiveCorporation, founded in January 1991 by Henry S. Courbis.

Why the name ReActive? As Chemistry and Physics state: ReActivity belongs to the Fundamental Forces, disposed or inclined to participate readily in interactions. Reference ‘Active‘ and its synonyms in the dictionary and they state: Always being Active, ProActively assessing situations and new technologies, constantly exploring new ideas and areas for growth, always on the move and never being at rest. We’re Actively at it… again: ReActive!

ReActive started as Interactive Business Systems, Inc. (IBS) in January 1991 and mainly focused on custom written accounting software and IT hardware support and networking for small and medium sized companies. After selling his half of IBS in February 1993 Henry founded D&S Technologies, Inc. which was more IT service and hardware based. After buying out his business partner in July of 1994 Henry became full owner and changed the company name to Reactive Computers. This was the official beginning of ReActive as it is known today.

In the early years ReActive was primarily based in Southern New Jersey. They quickly expanded up and down the North East corridor of the United States. Their client base ranged as far West as Lancaster, PA. As far North as Road Island. And as far south as Delaware. ReActive Computers currently holds the record for longest surviving, single owner, IT Support company in NJ (17 years). Henry retired from IT work in December of 2007.

In July of 2005 he founded ReActiveMicro which produces designs for 8bit and 16bit computers, primarily the Apple II family.

For a brief time in mid-2005 to mid-2006 ReActiveMicro was partnered with Gerber Street Enterprises operated by Bill Garber. In 2007 Henry partnered with Anthony Martino who then founded UltimateApple2.com. In 2015 they collaborated on the brand "Ultimate-Micro.com". Henry mainly does design work, Anthony mainly runs the Store, and both perform project alpha testing and user support.
