The Family History

As part of Jacob Stern & Sons, Inc., Acme-Hardesty is proud to share a long history of innovation and growth.

The future—held in the palm

Acme-Hardesty created a new supply-chain strategy and began importing and distributing palm-based oleochemicals from Malaysia. In the late 1980s, Jacob Stern & Sons’ Texas plant became the world’s largest facility dedicated to tallow when it was modernized to accommodate any type of specification requirements for its worldwide customers.
