Haemonetics Learns the Hard Way
Executive SummaryAfter a failed excursion into the blood banking business, Haemonetics tries to get back on track by returning to its core business of manufacturing blood collection and blood salvage devices. Underestimating the perils of running blood collection centers, Haemonetics found itself diverting resources from its device business and alienating the customers with whom it now competed. A new management team is divesting the blood centers, refocusing on developing new products, and working to mend fences with former customers such as the Red Cross.
