Terumo to open blood product manufacturing site in Vietnam
Terumo has made plans to open a site for construction near Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam for a new factory. The factory will manufacture products for Terumo's blood management business, which is one of the company's core corporate strategies. The factory will be established in December 2012, and will occupy approximately 100,000 sqm. Terumo plans to invest US$89.9 million in the factory, which will manufacture blood bags and automated blood collection disposable kits.
In April 2012, Terumo BCT was established through the integration of CaridianBCT and Terumo Transfusion, following Terumo's acquisition of CaridianBCT in April 2011.
