There's a reason why some companies are able to stay in business for more than a half a century or longer. Take Hardec's for example. Since our family-owned company started in 1956, we've made sure one thing about our operations remained the same throughout the years. And that's living up to our motto on a daily basis.

Partnering with us is like becoming an extended Hardec's family member. Here, you're one of us. We want you to feel comfortable, confident, and important. So it's not uncommon to find our team going the extra mile whenever we can just to please our family of customers.

Many of our associates are involved in the local school system, abuse centers, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Lions Club, Rotary Club, and Sports and Scouts to give back to the community that has supported our success for more than 50 years. It's just our nature.


Hardec's was formed out of the purchase of traditional wholesaler Baxter Candy and Tobacco Co. And it was Baxter route driver John Simpson who, despite being deaf and mute, set the standard for our company-wide commitment to delivering genuine customer service.

Our current staff of 30 well trained and knowledgeable employees are proud to carry on the John Simpson tradition, striving to achieve total customer satisfaction no matter the circumstance. It is our no-hassle business policy that we uphold with all our clients, from grocery and convenient stores to restaurants and tobacco shops, that makes us unique.

Automation has supplanted the days of John Simpson but Hardec's foundation is solid. We have more than tripled our sales in the past five years and yet there is still one focus, service. We must carry the products the customer wants on their shelves and we must be priced competitive, but our foundation is customer service. It is our history and our future.
