Acme-Hardesty began more than 80 years ago. As a division of Jacob Stern and Sons, we’re built upon an even longer history of innovation and growth. Our parent company, Jacob Stern & Sons, Inc., has been in business for more than 155 years (est. 1857) and continues to be managed by descendants of the founding family.
Today we’ve evolved into one of the largest distributors of castor oils and derivatives, palm derivatives, preservatives and surfactants—as well as a full range of renewable palm-based glycerine, fatty acids and fatty alcohols.
We see ourselves as the bridge that connects suppliers in with customers in North America. And as a pipeline—one that brings essential materials, needed by thousands of manufacturers, to create products that make life better for millions of consumers worldwide.
Acme-Hardesty has re-strategized and enhanced our market focus while expanding our product line. We continue to develop renewable, bio-based solutions for the future. Acme-Hardesty’s concentrates our sourcing efforts on green, naturally derived, renewable and sustainable products to meet our customer’s needs.
