Who we are, and What we do

You have been protected by and benefitted from our products, even if you never knew it.

From smoke detectors and automatic door sensors to water quality analysers and blood pressure monitors, our technologies help people in every walk of life and every corner of the world.

Our ophthalmic companies are helping prevent and cure blindness from London to Uganda, and our environmental businesses are combating water shortages and improving crop yields.

Our safety interlocks and bursting disks save lives and prevent industrial and environmental disasters, and our sensors and detectors protect millions of people every day.

We have operating companies all over the world, corporate hubs in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas, and do business across the globe.

We are Halma, and we protect lives and improve quality of life for people worldwide.

Vision & Strategy

Halma challenges itself to double its revenue and profit every 5 five years, with an even split of organic growth and acquisition activity.

More about our strategy…

We develop and create technologies that have a real, positive impact on people’s lives and health, businesses’ safety and efficiency, and the world’s limited natural resources.

By applying innovative science and engineering to critical resources, processes and aspects of life our businesses have intrinsic strength and stability: our long-term growth is underpinned by a foundation of increasing demand for life-critical resources, safety in the workplace, and better healthcare.

More about our commitment to diversity…

Performance Track Record

Halma has achieved record revenue and profit for the last 12 consecutive years, and a 37-year track record of growing dividend payments by 5% or more every year – the longest on the London Stock Exchange.

The diverse range of niche markets that our companies are involved in are typically non-cyclical, with high-barriers to entry and strong long term growth drivers.

Regulation underpins many of them, making customer spending non-discretionary, and our companies’ strong market positions offer good opportunities to capitalise on upgrade and replacement sales opportunities as customers seek to maintain compliance and conform to best practice.
