COVID-19 Response

As an essential business with deep experience in serving healthcare markets, HALCO is operating without disruption. We are taking every precaution to protect the health and safety of our employees and remain committed to serving the business needs of our customers with quality products and services.

Our company is innovative and adaptive. We are using that spirit of innovation, in cooperation with many of our customers, to solve new problems posed by the crisis, and the “new normal” that lies ahead. Together, we’ve created a line of personal protection and workplace safety products to serve many new and existing markets.

Our traditional fastening solutions are available now and will be when the anticipated recovery takes place. At the same time, many of our products that have been designed specifically for the current crisis will be in demand for a long time to prevent its return. We will supply solutions for as long as it’s necessary to help prevent the spread of this invasive virus. If you have a product need or idea for a COVID-19 solution that your business can address, let’s work together to make it happen. We truly are all in this together.
