Spire Sells Off Catheter Biz

9/9/09

Spire Corp. of Bedford, MA, said today it is divesting its hemodialysis catheter business in order to focus exclusively on making equipment for solar photovoltaic module manufacturing. Bard Access Systems is buying the catheter division for $15 million. “The divestiture of the hemodialysis catheter business at this time is clearly in Spire’s best strategic interest,” said Spire CEO Roger Little in a statement. “We continue to see tremendous opportunity in the solar market and can better capitalize on these opportunities with a more focused approach.”
