BRAINTREE, Mass., Dec. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Haemonetics Corporation (NYSE: HAE), a global medical technology company focused on delivering innovative hematology solutions to drive better patient outcomes, announced today that the company will be relocating its global headquarters to downtown Boston from its current location in Braintree, Massachusetts. Haemonetics' new headquarters will occupy over 62,000 square feet at 125 Summer Street.
"Haemonetics' move to Boston will position our teams to work in close proximity to the city's world-class healthcare, technology and higher education communities and its thriving culture of innovation," said Chris Simon, President and CEO of Haemonetics. "As a company driving accelerated growth, this move will provide a dynamic space to engage our employees as we advance our ways of working."
The new Boston headquarters will enable Haemonetics to right-size its footprint by selling its 40-acre campus in Braintree and will provide a sustainable, contemporary workplace, including dedicated lab and research space, to support the company's collaborative, performance-driven culture. The company's corporate and commercial teams will sit side by side with its research and development organizations. The company has signed a multiyear lease through 2032 and expects to have employees located across four floors of the 495,000 square foot LEED and Energy Star certified office tower.
The new office location offers convenient access to Interstate 93, the Massachusetts Turnpike, Logan International Airport, Downtown Crossing and South Station, the city's main multimode transportation center. The move to the new location is expected to commence within the next year. With approximately 3,000 global employees, Haemonetics expects to move its more than 200 headquarters based positions to the new location.
"We're excited to welcome Haemonetics to 125 Summer Street as we continue to create a destination for innovative companies. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them to create an inspiring workspace for their employees," said Matthew Polhemus, Senior Leasing Manager at Oxford Properties.
Cushman & Wakefield brokered the lease for Haemonetics with Oxford Properties Group, owner and manager of 125 Summer Street, and will also represent Haemonetics in the sale of the current Braintree campus.
