Hall Labs History

Creating Value from Innovation

Company Roots

Hall Labs traces its roots back to H. Tracy Hall, the inventor of man-made diamond. After the original breakthrough, he invented and built many high pressure high temperature systems and used them to create novel ultrahard materials.

His son David Hall also made several high pressure high temperature inventions, and over the years has innovated in networking, construction, electromechanical systems, and many other fields. He has founded, grown, and sold many businesses (details below). In the past several years, Hall Labs and its predecessors have consistently outperformed all other companies and organizations in the State of Utah in generation of patents.
