Halma, the global group of life-saving technology companies, has been named one of Britain’s Most Admired Companies 2019 by Management Today. In addition to being named as a top ten company, Halma also won the individual category award for Engineering.

The news was revealed last night at a ceremony in central London, where Charles King, Head of Investor Relations, and Jo Smith, Managing Director of Halma company Fortress Interlocks, accepted the award on behalf of Halma.

Commenting on the award, Halma’s Group Chief Executive, Andrew Williams, said:
"This award is recognition of the hard work and dedication of all our employees around the world who are helping us to fulfil our purpose of growing a safer, cleaner, healthier future for everyone, every day. It is testament to why Halma is such a rewarding place to work: we have a clear purpose, a strong culture, and we develop innovative technologies that help solve some of the world’s most important challenges, from water quality to preventable blindness.”

Paul Simpson, Editor of Management Today commented:
"Running since 1990, Britain’s Most Admired Companies remains one of the most in-depth and best-established corporate reputation surveys in the country. This year, Halma has earned the ultimate accolade from its peers (and fiercest critics) by being named one of the Top 10 Most Admired Companies in the country - and the most respected company in the engineering and machinery sector. A global group of life-saving technology companies, Halma is a true British success story."

Halma has been ranked as Britain's Most Admired Engineering company this year and has also increased its overall position from 29th in 2018 to 7th in 2019.

The global group recently announced good progress in the first half of 2019/20, building on its successful track record of 16 consecutive years of record revenue and profit growth, and over 40 consecutive years of dividend growth over 5% or more.
