Our Company

Who We Are


Ingenuity is the Haws culture. Every day we work to address your needs and solve your challenges by applying imagination and initiative to make your job easier. Haws is committed to inventing, designing, and manufacturing hydration products as well as standardized and customized emergency response products. With more than 8,000 distribution locations and 250 employees worldwide, we continually focus on quality, service, reliability, and complete solution support. 


With the invention of the drinking fountain in 1906 by Luther Haws, the Haws Sanitary Drinking Faucet Company formed in 1909 in Berkeley, California. During the 1950s, Haws introduced emergency drench showers and safety eyewashes into its manufacturing line. Establishing headquarters in Sparks, Nevada in 1996, Haws continued expanding, opening global locations: Haws AG (Switzerland), Haws Manufacturing Pte, Ltd (Singapore and China), Haws-Avlis (Brazil), and Haws India. To this day, Haws’ innovative spirit is driven by third, fourth, and fifth generations of the Haws family.
