Our history

We’ve always been an ideas company - ideas that make home life safer, easier and more enjoyable. At Hailo, these form the hub around which Rudolf Loh set up the company in 1947, since when Hailo has continued to develop and today is a global company distributing top quality products in more than 60 countries.
