FOUR GENERATIONS OF IMPORT-EXPORT EXPERIENCE
International Trade Served By Expertise
SEEDS OF INSPIRATION
Almost 160 years ago, Theodore Harth travelled to Latin America to trade French goods. It was the beginning of an adventure that inspires our company to this day, four generations later.
FROM IDEA TO REALITY
Once back home, in Paris, the success of his trip inspired Théodore Harth to establish ‘HARTH & Co’, a company that specialized in exporting goods to the Americas. Every year, new markets and product ranges were added as new opportunities arose.
AWARENESS LEADS TO GROWTH
A fine example of Harth’s market awareness was the creation of a subsidiary CIMAC in 1969 in New Caledonia after the rising economic significance of the Pacific Ocean Area.
CONSOLIDATING THE ADVANTAGE
HARTH & Co then became a limited liability company, uniting generations and taking care to preserve its centuries-old values and to maintain the principles of rigour that govern our profession. In accordance with the family tradition, our leaders hold functions within various professional bodies that are active in developing international trade.
2013 AND BEYOND…
Today, the fifth generation of Theodore Harth’s descendants is poised to take over the management of the company and usher in a new era.
This new generation is well prepared to take the reins of the company. After graduating from top business schools, it has lived and worked abroad, including in Asia, where is has learned various languages and mastered the subtleties of doing business in Asian cultures.
Now that they have perfected their global trading skills, the new leaders of Harth Trading are gradually taking over the business, with the help of the previous generation and the staunch support of our staff, with its outstanding expertise in global trading.
