HALCO Software Systems was the recipient of the 2022 Omond Solandt Award in operations research from the Canadian Operational Research Society.

This prestigious award, which has typically been awarded to much larger organizations like IBM and Air Canada, was in recognition of HALCO’s developments in production planning optimization methods in the forest industry.

Speaking of the award, HALCO principal Alex Rapoport said “we are very proud to receive this award, which we see as a tribute to Howard Leach and his vision when he founded HALCO in 1988.”
