Harmac Celebrates 40 Years of Success and Growth

October 14, 2022

This fall we’re commemorating Harmac's 40th anniversary at all three of our facilities. We’ve come together for meals, dancing, games and other forms of camaraderie, providing our employees with various opportunities to celebrate in ways that fit their cultures and communities best.

Our employees are the core of our company – our greatest asset. Together we salute the remarkable journey which we, and the hundreds who came before us, have taken.

It all began in 1981, when seven visionary entrepreneurs led the buyout of a key supplier of a kidney treatment product manufacturer where they had previously worked. Harmac has steadily evolved over the years. We’ve grown and diversified our capabilities and products, the markets we serve, our workforce, and ultimately, the patients who benefit from our hard work. Our mission is to change the lives of patients, employees, and the communities in which we work, and we strive to achieve that every day.

Our strategic expansion to Ireland in 1998, and then Tijuana in 1999, were major inflection points in our progression and maturation. Both operations are thriving today as major employers in and supporters of their communities, as is our Buffalo headquarters. Our workforce now stands at roughly 1,250 team members worldwide, with more than 40 nationalities represented among our colleagues. Our diversity is a continuing point of pride – and a clear and valuable point of differentiation, as we bring an array of perspectives to the table for our clients.

Equally important are our core values which make up our culture of honesty, integrity, and respect. They are evident in everything we do, steering our decisions and fueling our success. Similarly, the interconnectedness and sense of “one-ness” we have built is tangible and profound. We may be separated my thousands of miles, but we stand together and collaborate in concert.

From seven founders to more than 1,250 today… it’s incredible. Only 25% of all businesses make it even 15 years, and here we are nearly triple that. As we look to the future, we have never been better positioned for continued growth across all our locations and product lines. We’re financially healthy and recently completed a new, three-year plan. We’ve welcomed several new customers and related opportunities, with many more still on our radar.

We humbly thank our customers, communities, and the patients we ultimately serve. But this fall’s celebrations are all about our employees. Without their dedication and teamwork, none of this would have been possible. Here’s to the next 40 years!
