About The Haviland Corporation

Since 1946, Haviland Corporation has improved the way our industry cleans. Warren and Van Haviland began manufacturing floor squeegees in a small facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Since that time, the company has grown expedientially. The growth required several moves including a move in 1974 to Linn, Missouri where the manufacturing is done today.

The company has also diversified the products manufactured as well as the industries it serves.

Some things have remained the same; Haviland is still a family owned business and manufactures products in the United States. Haviland strives to use raw materials obtained in the United States in an effort to keep jobs in America.
