Our Story

Generation in the making

Our humble beginnings were in Australia in 1892 when William E. Hay founded the S. A. Brush Co. Ltd – a small broom and brush manufacturer with a big dream. From generation to generation, the company grew and upgraded its capabilities, transforming into the national industry leader SABCO. Then in 1983, William’s grandson Donald Hay astutely observed Asia’s rise as a global manufacturer.

Confident and determined, he launched a new company in Hong Kong: Hayco. Focusing on the family's established speciality of brush-making, Hayco opened an injection-molding factory in China led by a small but dedicated team. From there, growth has been non-stop.

Today, with Christopher Hay as our chief executive officer, we remain dedicated to the same values that launched us more than 100 years ago.

Our leadership

At the helm

We started as a family business, and while we have grown, we have kept that essence. Our chief executive officer Christopher Hay and his father Donald, the executive chairman, represent that same familial spirit, consistent in everything Hayco does. From Australia to Hong Kong and beyond, our leadership team continues to view everyone involved in making Hayco's future as family members.

A message from our CEO

At HAYCO we work hand in hand with our customers to build smart products and supply chains that help them win in the marketplace. We do this by delivering superior quality and adding value through better technology, more efficient processes and excellent staff.
