HALO Branded Solutions Completes New Headquarters
HALO Branded Solutions, Sterling, Ill., announced a new chapter in the company's 63-year history with the move to new company headquarters at 1500 HALO Way in Sterling.
The state-of-the-art, 157,500 sq. ft. facility will immediately house HALO's 300-person headquarters team with workstations for 200 additional employees. The building includes a 90,000 sq. ft. warehouse for corporate promotional and recognition programs that are currently housed in two warehouses in the Sterling-Rock Falls community.
"This building was designed both for our valued employees of today, and for the employees we will be drawing to HALO for years to come," said Marc Simon, CEO of HALO. "We have collaborated meeting space, a wellness room, additional training space and the latest technology throughout the building to allow our support team to do the best job possible for our highly valued account executives and clients."
The HALO-owned building is situated on a portion of a 20 acre site, and represents the first phase of what will eventually be a 280,000 sq. ft. facility. Groundbreaking was on April 1, 2017, and the project was completed on time and on budget.
"We received excellent ideas from nearly every employee, and incorporated many of those ideas into the building design," Simon added. "Our goals were to make this the most comfortable work environment possible while providing flexibility for substantial future growth. We have achieved these goals."
HALO is planning a series of open houses over the next several months for employee families, local business leaders, as well as HALO's sales and support team from around the country.
"There has never been a more exciting time to be at HALO!" said Terry McGuire, HALO senior vice president of marketing and supplier relations.
