About New Hartford
New Hartford, New York
New Hartford has been our headquarters since the 1950s, when we moved from nearby downtown Utica where our offices were based since 1914.
Throughout the decades, our team grew as our company did – and now have more than 800 team members working together at our Home Office, and 1,300 companywide.
New Hartford and its surrounding area hold an unbelievable amount of history and culture. Within minutes of our office you can see a Broadway show at The Stanley Theater, visit the beautiful Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute, enjoy some great local food or play a round of golf at one of the many local courses.
Inside our building, we act as a small village! Team members enjoy access to a free fitness center, a full-service cafeteria, a credit union, and even our very own registered nurse.
Community involvement is something that Utica National and its employees do best.
This includes having an in-house committee made up of employees who work with our local United Way to make a difference in the community. Utica National is the largest donor to the United Way of the Mohawk Valley in the area, raising an average of $220,000 each year during our annual campaign.
In 2020, we donated $25,000 dollars to Hope House, a local organization that provides nutritious meals to individuals and families. The Utica National Group Foundation, our company’s philanthropic arm, donated $250,000 to The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties, which distributed the funds to nearly 3 dozen local food pantries and soup kitchens throughout the area, and contracted with local restaurants to provide food for those who needed it most. Our Foundation also donated $50,000 to Rescue Mission of Utica, which paid for more than 5,000 meals over 4 weeks for the area residents they serve.
