A company in Sterling is growing very quickly and needs more space. Yesterday, HALO Branded Solutions broke ground on its new, global headquarters in the Meadowlands Business Park.

HALO distributes many products companies and organizations use for promotion.

Heather Sotelo, Executive Director of the Greater Sterling Development Corporation, says HALO began business under the name Lee Wayne in 1953. Currently, the promotional products company employs 275 people and plans to hire 250 more over the next five years.

She says HALO designed the new, open concept building with workers in mind. And it's refreshing that the company gives a lot of credit to employees for its success.

HALO's new headquarters will feature 67,000 sq.ft. of office space and a 90,000 sq.ft. warehouse. Construction will take about a year.

Sotelo says it'll be the largest new building within the Sterling city limits in the past 15 to 20 years. And HALO did not ask for financial incentives from the city or state. The site is already located in Sterling's enterprise zone within the industrial park.A bag of candies tied with a bow with FedEx printed on the front
