Millipore Corporation was formed as a Massachusetts corporation in 1954. During much of our history, we have developed and sold products based on our proprietary filtration and other separations technologies to a variety of industries. In 2001, we made a strategic decision to focus primarily on the life science markets. Beginning in 2005, we began implementing a strategy that sharpened our focus on the fast growing biopharmaceutical manufacturing and life science research markets. During this time, we have made acquisitions to transform Millipore into a larger and more innovative company. These acquisitions expanded the products and services we offer and complemented our brand, sales force, and customer relationships.
