Just wondering, how many computers does your company produce in a year?
Haiku is getting updated several times per day, how do you plan to support that?
Haiku is MIT licensed so you are free to preinstall it, just know that
Haiku is still pre-alpha, and will change.
Have you tried installing Haiku onto them yet?  If so can you post the
output of listdev so we can see what devices are in it? (in terminal
type listdev, then copy/paste that into an email) That might help in
seeing what hardware is working and what's not for that model.
