Halo and West Palm Beach are a perfect match: We’re both high tech and on the cutting edge.”
Halo Technologies LLC specializes in 3D printing and rapid prototyping nationwide. Halo continues to grow in popularity in 3D printing services with an expertise in product optimization, the company said. Their additive manufacturing and prototyping services are in demand in the architecture, marine, automotive, aviation and medical industries.
“Halo Technologies is an exemplary representation of the innovative companies that are choosing to call Palm Beach County home,” said Shareena of the Business Development Board. “As the BDB continues to attract and assist growing tech companies, it is important that companies like Halo Technologies are aware of the attributes our community has to support revolutionary technology and advanced manufacturing.”
“Halo Technologies is a prime example of the homegrown tech startups Palm Beach County is fostering,” said Palm Beach Tech Association’s Executive Director Joe Russo. “Not only are they quite successful, they are dedicated to building the community and city as they grow.”
By being a unique tech company and opening a new storefront in the city, Halo Technologies will create jobs and business opportunities in the downtown area. The company expects to hire 50 new employees by 2018 and make a capital investment of $300,000 with a warehouse expansion in early 2017.
