HALO Branded Solutions Announces Headquarters Expansion
HALO Branded Solutions announced a major expansion of the company’s corporate headquarters in Sterling, Ill. The expansion comes just 16 months after the completion of HALO’s new corporate headquarters, and will include an additional 253,300 sq. ft. of warehouse space and 23,500 sq. ft. of office and meeting space.
When the project is completed in early 2020, the company will be able to accommodate an additional 350 employees. HALO currently has approximately 600 employees at its Sterling location. The initial buildout is in progress with 380 additional parking spaces added at the intersection of Lynn Blvd and Lefevre Ave in Sterling and warehouse construction adjacent to the firm’s current headquarters at 1500 HALO Way.
The projected completion for the warehouse space is December 2019, with the office completion by May 2020.
“Our original intent was to build a second phase within five years," said HALO CEO Marc Simon. "Favorable market conditions, acquisitions and the addition of several major clients during the past two years have provided us with the opportunity to expand our headquarters campus much earlier than anticipated. We were fortunate to have the support of the city of Sterling, Sterling’s local economic development team, and our financial sponsor TPG Growth to accelerate our expansion."
“HALO has been an excellent corporate citizen," said Sterling mayor Skip Lee. "They have a strong community focus and they treat their employees very well. We are extremely pleased with the many contributions they make to Sterling and the surrounding communities.”
Winter Construction of Freeport, Ill., was awarded the contract for the building and grounds.
“The Winter team won international design awards for our current space, and we were confident in their expertise," Simon added. "The innovation and employee-centric design of our addition will allow us to serve our clients with sophisticated distribution solutions while providing our valued staff with a comfortable and functional work space for years to come.”
