BOSTON– Haemonetics Corporation, a global medical technology company, opened its new global headquarters in Boston. The company had been based in Braintree, MA for more than four decades
Designed by Boston architecture, planning and interior design firm SGA, the new location of Haemonetics occupies over 62,000 square feet of space across four floors at 125 Summer Street. Gilbane served as general contractor and Lerner Ladds Bartels Architects designed the lab space.
The new space supports Haemonetics’ work to build a collaborative, performance-driven culture, bringing together the Company’s corporate and commercial teams side by side with its research and development (R&D) organization in a contemporary environment, Haemonetics said in a statement.
“Relocating our headquarters to Boston is an important step in Haemonetics’ transformation,” said Chris Simon, President and CEO of Haemonetics. “Our new downtown location in close proximity to the medical, technology and higher education communities that are driving the future of our industry will help foster innovation and collaboration to improve the quality of care for the patients, donors and healthcare providers who depend on our technologies.”
125 Summer Street is a modern, LEED Gold and Energy Star certified office tower.
Haemonetics said that this relocation enables the company to right-size its footprint by moving from its former location on a multiacre campus in Braintree, MA, to a sustainable and efficient space in a contemporary facility with access to public transportation and major roadways. The building is centrally located near South Station and offers services such as an employee gym and bike maintenance and storage.
The Haemonetics office layout maximizes exposure to natural light and features dedicated state-of-the-art lab space for the Company’s R&D teams. The open concept office gives employees personal workspaces with electronically controlled sit-stand desks and updated technology, several types of collaboration spaces, a wellness room and a café with a variety of amenities including snacks, flavored waters and rotating on-tap beverages like cold brew coffee.
“We are thrilled to welcome Haemonetics to Boston, as attracting innovative companies that demonstrate high performance and aspire to solve tough challenges in technology and healthcare will help us drive economic growth in the region,” said James E. Rooney, President and CEO of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce. “Haemonetics’ addition to our diverse and collaborative business community further solidifies the city’s status as a major innovation and med tech hub.”
Founded in 1971 in Massachusetts, Haemonetics has a global presence, conducting business in more than 90 countries. The Company has approximately 3,000 global employees, with more than 200 based in Boston.
