In April of 2012, Pall Corporation announced it would be selling off $550 million in assets to the healthcare company Haemonetics Corporation. The deal stipulated that Haemonetics would receive certain equipment and operations used in blood transfusions and collections along with filtration and processing systems, and manufacturing facilities located in California, Mexico, and Italy. In addition, about 1,300 employees were transitioned over to Haemonetics as a result of the deal.
According to Pall Corporation’s current president and CEO, Larry Kingsley, the sale of assets would be a direct contributor to the long-term growth of the company. Under the terms of the deal, the sale is expected to be completed by 2016.
