Halma plc is a British global group of safety equipment companies that makes products for hazard detection and life protection based in Amersham, England.[2] It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.


The company was established in 1894 in Ceylon as The Nahalma Tea Estate Company Limited.[3] It switched to rubber production in 1937 and became The Nahalma Rubber Estate Company Limited.[3] During the early 1950s the company's rubber estates were nationalised by the Sri-Lankan government, and in 1956 the company became Halma Investments Limited, thereby severing its connections with both tea and rubber and becoming an investment and industrial holding company.[3]

In the early 1970s the company began a sequence of acquisitions in the mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering sectors. The company was renamed Halma Limited in 1973 and registered as a public limited company in 1981, becoming Halma plc.[3] In 1984, the company acquired Apollo Fire Detectors, the largest manufacturer of smoke detectors in the UK.[4]


The company is organised as follows:[5]

  • Process safety
  • Infrastructure safety
  • Medical
  • Environmental & Analysis
