Harold Meachum and Ward Meachum[src]

Rand Enterprises is an international corporation of humanitarian aid, headquartered in New York City. Founded by Wendell Rand and Harold Meachum, the company flourished under their leadership. In 2001, Meachum engineered an airplane accident which claimed the lives of Rand and his wife, and led to their son Danny Rand being declared legally dead; with Rand's death, the company subsequently fell under the sole leadership of Meachum.

In 2004, Meachum died of cancer and his son Ward Meachum and daughter Joy Meachum officially took over, although Harold, who had been resurrected by the Hand, continued to lead the company from the shadows. After Danny Rand returned to New York in 2016, he was granted his rightful position as majority shareholder, although his decision to prioritize morality over profits caused the board to terminate his employment, firing Ward and Joy as well.

Following the assassination of board member Lawrence Wilkins, slated to be the company's new leader, Rand Enterprises had the three reinstated in order to salvage their public image. After the death of Bakuto, Harold decided to reveal his existence in order to officially reclaim the title of CEO; however, Ward killed his father in order to save Rand's life.

Rand Enterprises was founded by Wendell Rand and Harold Meachum, and headquartered in New York City. Since its initial launch, Rand Enterprises has been a successful international company, specializing at several industries such as chemicals, cybernetics and pharmaceutics.[1] The new corporation also made business rivalries with various companies such as the Roxxon Corporation.[2]

Jeri Hogarth was employed by Rand Enterprises as an intern for Rand. During her time there, Hogarth made a rivalry with Rand's secretary Margaret, cursing her, what was heard by Rand's son, Danny. Hogarth bribed Danny to not tell anyone about that.[3]

Together with their family members, Rand and Meachum filmed a commercial for Rand Enterprises, although Danny previously refused to participate.[4]

The car accident that blinded Matt Murdock

In 1994, a Rand Enterprises truck with hazardous chemicals was part of a car accident that almost killed an elderly man. Chemicals from the flipped truck splashed on Matt Murdock's face, who saved the man's life. As they were absorbed into his eyes, Murdock was blinded.[5]

The Rands Are Gone

As a successful company, Rand Enterprises was approached by the Hand. Madame Gao offered Harold Meachum and Wendell Rand cooperation what Rand ultimately dismissed. However, Meachum was diagnosed with terminal cancer and Gao promised to cure him if he agreed to work with the Hand. Unbeknownst to Rand, Meachum used Rand Enterprises' assets and built several laboratories in China for the purpose of expanding the Hand's drug manufacturing operations.[6]

Rand learned about the secret business in China and charted a plane to Anzhou, planning to shut down the laboratories. Fearing that his actions would be uncovered, Meachum caused the plane crush at the Himalayas, seemingly killing Rand, as well as his wife and son.[1]

Meachum then became the CEO of Rand Enterprises, continuing his cooperation with the Hand. Also, he decided to put Ward Meachum in charge of Rand's subsidiary, Domani Architecture.[7] Eventually, Meachum died and the company was inherited by Ward, while Joy Meachum became the Chief Counsel. However, Meachum was resurrected by Gao who forced him to control Rand Enterprises for the Hand's benefit through Ward, who was the only one to know of his survival.[1]

"It must be the Hand."
―Accountant and Colleen Wing[src]

Charting the private jet and helicopter owned by Rand Enterprises, Danny Rand and Colleen Wing returned to New York City from Cambodia where they were fighting against the Hand. They visited the Rand Enterprises Building to track down the Hand's transaction trail. With the accountant's assistance, Rand and Wing learned that the Hand's front companies were shut down and their assets were transferred to the Midland Circle Financial. As the CEO of Rand Enterprises, Rand visited the Midland Circle where he faced Alexandra Reid.[8]

Crafting Misty Knight's Bionic Arm

"Okay, Rand tech, let's see what you got."
Misty Knight[src]

Danny Rand personally requested the Rand Enterprises cybernetic division to design bionic prosthetic arm for Misty Knight whose arm was cut off by Bakuto. Together with Colleen Wing, Rand sent Knight a letter with the blueprint of the arm what she ultimately accepted. Rand Enterprises assigned Steve to test an arm and help Knight to adapt to her. In the Rand Enterprises Building, Steve and Knight tested an arm while he was recording every movement to configure it.[9]

Later, Ward Meachum personally checked the characteristics and purchase orders of the arm, admitting the value of Knight's prosthesis.[10]

Situation with the Stylers

"A bit much to burn the whole thing down, don't you think?"
"Only way to be sure. Besides, I got Rand to purchase the building and the lot underneath it, so no harm done. I mean, it's not like I'm gonna pursue a complaint, is it? You're right, though. Money is power."
Luke Cage and Danny Rand[src]

Seeking for the shelter to hide from the Stylers, Luke Cage and Misty Knight contacted Danny Rand and asked him for help. Rand informed them about the Rand Enterprises Research Facility located in Queens which was not opened at that moment. Cage and Knight brought Mariah Dillard, Tilda Johnson and James Lucas to the facility where the Stylers were unable to find them.

However, Bushmaster was informed about their location by Nandi Tyler and led the Stylers to attack the facility and murder Dillard. The confrontation resulted in McIver's arrest and particular wreckage of the facility while Rand Enterprises refused to comment the skirmish to the press.[11]

Learning that McIver escaped from the police custody, Rand personally arrived in Harlem to assist Cage in his fight against the Stylers. Together, they located the growhouse owned by the Stylers where McIver establishing the production of Nightshade. Rand and Cage defeated all hostiles and burned down the whole facility to stop McIver's schemes. Rand then contacted the company to purchase the facility and surrounding territory to keep any attention away from him and Cage.[12]
