From tiny shrimp shells mighty companies grow. HemCon Medical Technologies, maker of the blood-stopping bandage used on battlefields that was developed with the Oregon Medical Laser Center and Providence St. Vincent’s Hospital, has made its first acquisition.
Portland-based HemCon announced in late February that it would pay almost $41 million in a cash-for-stock agreement for Alltracel Pharmaceuticals, a publicly traded Irish company that focuses on research and commercialization of health-care products. This move will
boost HemCon’s annual revenues in 2008 to about $100 million, and push the number of local jobs from 115 to 130 or 140, according to HemCon president and CEO John W. Morgan. (Alltracel’s headcount is 55.)
