Harborchem® was organized in 1979. The initial company objective was to import and distribute selected chemicals in North America. Harborchem® has been profitable since its inception.

In 1986, Harborchem® purchased Maplechem -- also a distributor of chemicals. In addition, Maplechem had technology and process expertise in specialty chemicals. The combined companies created a strong manufacturing and import/export base. Activities were consolidated under the Harborchem® name. Harborchem®further expanded its capabilities into the field of distillation, separation, recovery and reuse.

Harborchem® has grown into a medium sized company, expertly providing a distinctive range of products and services worldwide.
